I hear that large telescopes can resolve the Andromeda galaxy into individual stars. Is it possible to do the same for galaxies outside our local group? Also, have we observed any stars which sit in deep inter-galactic space, far from any galaxies?

I would guess a cepheid, you can certainly see them out to the local group (that's pretty much how you determine a galaxy is in the group) I don't knwo what the record is.
