Does anyone know where to get detailed information about the workings
of this game? I'm looking for things such as combat formulas, changes
in HP/AP on leveling, and other information that the game doesn't give
you, such as what the significance of the stars is next to an item,
etc.

There are already some in-depth FAQs at GameFAQs.com:

And more might be coming later on.

Thanks for the link but that's not really what I'm looking. I'm
looking for formulas and calculations like they used to include in
real strategy guides. I don't need a hints guide or walk through but
want to know how combat damage is calculated, how new HP/AP per level
is calculated, etc.

Yeah right! I might as well ask the neighborhood drunk how the game
works.

Yep, I understood that. The "In-depth FAQs" is the place to watch, not
the walkthroughs section. There is already some meta information
available (such as the skill FAQ), and GameFAQs is probably the best
source for this kind of information. It's worth asking in the message
board, as well.

At the moment this is the best I can do. I'm doubtful that the publisher
would give out information like this, but if they do, please add that
info to GameFAQs. :)

Okay, then figure it out yourself. I'm sure you can with the info
in the game. I mean, this game isn't Baldur's Gate.
