I’m here! Does the second attack from a Ranger taken after an attack action as part of that action have to be another attack action, or can it be any attack? I.e. A spell attack.

Except that the player’s handbook , under Attacks and Actions in Combat, sais nothing about the existence of a “Weapon Attack” as you just defined it. It does refer to a section called “Making an Attack” which clearly states that spells with attack roles are attacks. You can't mix casting a spell in with the Attack action.
