Does a stand-in member (i.e., replacing a sick colleague, being acknowledged by the meeting's Secretary, and having the full proxy of the regular member for the meeting s/he attends) have the right to make a motion?

The answer to this question will depend on your bylaws and possibly state law.  RONR prohibits the use of proxies unless required by the bylaws or by state law.  In those cases, you must look to your own rules or to state law to determine what rights proxy holders have, how they are used, and all other details concerning the use of proxies.  RONR has no provisions regarding the use of proxies.
