1. You’re creating the same fallback two times because rm=serif.

2. To pass a range use “-” as separator.

\definefallbackfamily [mainface] [serif] [Stix Two Text]

Do you have the Stix font on your system?

On my system this isn’t the case but I can use the XITS fonts.

\definefontfamily     [mainface] [serif] [XITS]
\definefontfamily     [mainface] [math]  [XITS Math]
