If I'm lower-to-none in one part of your stack, but decent in another part of the stack, is that also acceptable to apply?

If you ever look at a job spec and think "should I apply", the answer is always yes.

If your immediate reaction isn't "oh shit, I don't know any of what they're asking for" - apply.

Worst case - you don't get the job.

Good case - you learn something from the interview process.

Best case - you get the job.

It’s my own experiences, so not a one size fits all, but I wrote about this a while ago if you’re interested.

Fully agree. Sometimes it's hard for us to communicate the nuance in a job listing, but yes, we are looking for help in different parts of the stack and you don't have to be an expert in everything.
