Is the Avatar of Death spell hard-coded or can be modified?

Yes you can, the .xdb is in "GameMechanics\RPGStats" - AvatarOfDeath.xdb.

Thanks. What about its animation?

This line...

<Texture href="/UI/H5A2/Icons/Heroes_Specializations/AvatarOfDeath.(Texture).xdb#xpointer(/Texture)"/>

...is just the icon, right?

What do you mean by its animation?, you can change it to any creature you want.

About the icon: yes, but there are always two files, a .xdb and a .dds, the xdb is used for adressing to the icon and makes some settings.

Thank you. Could you please tell me what files I'd have to change? Where are they located?

The file Vokial mentioned is the only file you need to change (with the exception of the icon, if you want to change the icon). You will see that when you open it the lines are very easy to understand.

The file is located in the data.pak, after you have extracted and modified it you must repack it as .h5u and it will work as a mod.

These anim codes can be called from two places:
- automatically by the game (in combat or advmap). I think only attack00 is used here, never attack01, but I might be wrong
- manually in dialog scenes. Here any code can be called (and thus defined in the AnimSet), I assume that's where attack01 is used.

Which creature/hero are you looking at?
For example, Freyda has an anim called "assent " (notice the space at the end), which is obviously only called manually from dialog scenes.

I did a test battle and I'm pretty sure I saw both attacks, so it looks like they are randomly picked I guess...

Is it possible to change the delay between making a creature do their ranged attack, and the missile actually beginning to move across the screen (and if so, how)?

View several files n GM\Shot folder. Each shooter has linked such file in his Visual. Sorry I'm not explaining it further but I'm little tired. It shouldn't  cause you any probles tho.

Hmm, I've been playing around with those values for a while and it seems to be very hard to get things just right (as, as far as I'm aware, I can't test shots in the editor). Just happened to get something roughly right by chance.

Another q. for someone: to make a creature a large creature, do I just need to change CombatSize in the creature file, or does something else need to be done? I can't find anything else regarding it, but you never know...

Just change CombatSize to "2".  Not aware if it's necessary but I think you also have to add LARGE_CREATURE in the ability strings to make "Large Creature" show up in their ability list.

I have tried that with demons and ghosts, they became somewhat larger but not as large as normal large creatures. I wonder if it is possible to make creatures even more large.

It certainly is, we're doing it in ToK with the Flying Saucer.  Try setting CombatSize to 3.

A combatsize of 3 has serious effects on the gameplay, I would like to enlarge the models, but keep the size on 2, do you know if this is possible?

If you make each animation the model uses an effect, and double the size of the effect perhaps?

Cepheus, you did learn nothing

Only Combat Size tag.

Same with making creature shooter.

Yes, you are right, game chooses between attack00 and 01. That's why, ie, Paladin once attacks "normally", other time he jumps with his horse and attacks from little higher.
