Can this be applied to Kneser's fixed point solution for bases larger than (e^(1/e))? For base e, Kneser's solution, has complex values at the real number line,

No, Kneser though starts with the Schröder function at the primary (non-real) fixed point, which gives a superlogarithm/superexponential that has non-real values on the real axis. The superexponential is entire. However his aim is to have a real analytic solution. So he applies a conformal map to make it real on the real the axis, paying with the entireness.

This has probably already been done, but can Kneser's base e solution, approaching a complex fixed point at +infinity, be converted it to another solution, approaching the fixed point at -infinity, with real values at the real number line, for all x>-2? Perhaps this line of reasoning isn't applicable because the solution wouldn't be holomorphic for all x>-2.

I think basically its already what Kneser did, however I dont know whether his solution approaches a fixed point for . This is also rather doubtful, because the development at the conjugate fixed point should bring the same solution. It can not converge to the non-real fixed point and to its conjugate at the same time.

Did you have a look at my introduction to Kneser's superlogarithm?
