That'd do it, probably. Something like an Arcane Archer class, maybe.
Yes, but there is no reason to give it some weird name like in 3rd ed. or higher D&D (or even 2nd ed. AD&D extra books.) It is best to use simple class names, like was done in the days of Moria and earlier plain Angband. These fancy names imply things about one's character that may not be true, and imply things about game mechanics that may not be true, and no one may ever be 100% sure what they mean. A ranger need not be an archer.
