Can I create a Node from just a string “Node”? Same with “Vector2” or “Color”?

Right now I have a match(switch) setup, but wondering if there is a better way.

Yes you can by using str2var which also creates the values and in some cases may be required
For an idea of how that works first use var2str as invalid entries will return null


var red = str2var("Color(1, 0, 0)")


var vec = str2var("Vector2(10, 60)")


var node = str2var("Object("Node")")
