Yes, add - as an option to the four lines.

comment Drawing a triangle a star relative to a given point
Scaling via \includegraphics also scales the line-width, doesn't it?

comment Making forest tree with lots of text much narrower
The TikZ option text width helps with the maximum width. The option align can be used to set the vertical alignment of the lines. For example: for tree={node options={text width=2.5cm, align=left}}.

Nodes do not scale with a scope’s transformation. Though you can add transform shape to their options. (There is not really a question. ;))

comment Commutative diagrams and quantifiers
It is also possible to do the vertical lines in the same way as in Sigur’s answer (i.e. in seperate rows and columns of the matrix).

comment Arrow label on Chemfig image?
That does something: \chemfig{R'-[9]-[7]-[9](-[7]R'')=[10]@{O}O} \chemmove{\draw[<-] (O) -- + (45:1);} Unfortunately it doesn't update the bounding box. The manual has a lot more examples.

comment Points in rectangular coordinate system - specifying coordinates as function values
@user143462 \sqrt is a macro to typeset (square)roots in math-mode. sqrt (in this context) is a PGFmath function that evaluates to the squareroot of its parameter. All PGFmath functions use (, , and ) to delimit their parameters. For one-parameter functions you can also do (-1, sqrt 3/2) and (2, sin 60).

comment Aligning paths in tikz
All arrow tips from arrows.meta are capitalized. So it should be >=Stealth. stealth would activate the old arrow tip without the functionality of the new library. (The old stealth' arrow tip is now Stealth[round].)

comment Creating dots/lines brackets in tree with Tikz
@Alenanno (Sorry for the late response. Haven't seen your comment before.) You set the arrow tip just as before: -Latex, for the bended version you use -{Latex[bend]} (or >={Latex[bend]}. If you want to apply the option bend to all arrows in a scope you can to arrows={[bend]}.

comment Change labels on x-axis in TikZ plot
Do not use cm inside coordinate specification if you want to refer to the PGF coordinate system (with dimensions you access the paper coordinate system). See the x and the y key in the PGF/TikZ manual. (The default is x=1cm and y=1cm). That being said, you can also use \draw[x=1cm/30] \foreach \x in {30,60,...,360} {(\x, 1pt) -- (\x, -1pt) node[anchor = north] {$\x \degree$}};. (I moved the \foreach inside the path so that the calculation and transformation of x=1cm/30 is only done once.)

comment Can a shape be composed out of “subshapes” in TikZ?
I’d love your expertise on using \pgfnode inside \(behind)backgroundpath. Have you experienced any downside?

comment Defining my own custom white-boxed digital circuit component
I have to admit: The idea of using \pgfnode inside a shape’s definition did come very late to me (see comments to OP) but I have run out of time for now. I like to attempt a solution with \pgfnode next weekend.

comment Defining my own custom white-boxed digital circuit component
It might be possible to use the gate shapes inside a \pgfnode inside a \(before)backgroundpath which will need various keys (height, width, etc) re-set to appropriate values. Again, this is all dependent on the variety of your needed shapes. (This will also need the connections to be drawn in PGF, mind you.) Related: Can a shape be composed out of “subshapes” in TikZ?

There is also the not-so-great way of using a pic (see TikZ' manual).

comment Defining my own custom white-boxed digital circuit component
In that case, I'd suggest a rectangular node with an path picture and/or a append after command (possibly modified, see [1]/[2]). The anchors are relative easy to place. Are the positions fixed or should they be varied? Also, do you have a lot of shapes with different anchors? Than it might be easier to use pseudo-anchors (see comment above).
