…The ranged defense from holding a kite shield doesn’t seem to matter if you’re not the actual target of the shot so it just ignores your ranged defense and hits you automatically if you’re standing next to or in front of the actual target and the shot misses…

I had the same suspicion – and this is very bad

Yes, it is interesting to know – whether collaterial miss can hit a shield.

Question to players mostly, could you tell me, does a shield hit (striking by a melee weapon and hitting a shield with a slightly shield damage I think) count as “hit” or “miss” situation in terms of a hit probability from tooltip? If it is kind of hit but still completely deflected by a shieldman i’d like to know a percentage of this event and on what it depends in numbers.

Im pretty sure hitting a shield is always a miss. The animation of hitting a shield is just graphics. Also to my knowledge you only damage a shield with actual shield breaking, mostly axe related, skills.
