I mean obviously he wouldn't be able to pierce his skin would he? He is a sniper so maybe, but I'm assuming if Uvo can deal with a sniper with relative ease, so can Meryem. What if Illumi or Shalnark teamed up with someone similar to Meloreon or Chrollo doing his teleportation ability, do you think they could pierce Meryem somewhere with a needle and possess him? I guess that's the question with that style of manipulation, whether or not Meryem unguarded could be pierced with a nen needle or something. Obviously no one is as fast as meryem so something like teleportation or invisibility would be necessary to do it. Also what about the Ortho Siblings darts? Could that attack Meryem, what type of ability do you guys think it is? Manipulation/Conjuring? maybe Specialization I guess. I was never too clear on it. There's several ants who's abilities remain a mystery to me.

Well, the darts could certainly get to mereum IMO however actually hurting him is an entirely different thing. I mean, the guy has some pretty sick nen and has yupi's ability along with a probably insect like armor or something. I don't think the darts would actually harm him. As for what type of nen it is, IMO it is a bit complicated. The issue at hand is that it is a combination nen between two people. If I were to guess I would think it kinda works this way:
1.- Sister: She uses conjuration.
And then she adds a condition, when the badge is on the brother he can use his ability.
2.- Brother: Emission
Killia mentions it is a fish made from nen which pretty much rules out conjuration. Now, for the nen to appear elsewhere it would actually require emission and/or manipulation. Manipulation of the object to make it have an effect and emission to attack at long distance. I guess it could be primarily manipulation but emission makes more sense to me as that would seem to be the primary means of causing damage. Perhaps that would not matter as the risk of the game is pretty high.
Well sure ants are stronger then humans, but we don't know much about their skin compared to squad leaders when Nen isn't involved. I'd assume above average nen if attacking the right spot could at least slightly pierce Meryem's skin unguarded by nen. :P Hard to say really.
But Umm Why is the President labeled an Enhancer with the Hatsu ability Imo that is Emission and manipulation..Where is this officially stated?? Some may think Conjurer for his ability but his Statue holds no hidden ability which is why i stray away from it cause Netero was crazy he would you know make some dumb item up and put a whole bunch of crazy rules on it....Also my biggest alarm is that he has to use manipulation which is far ass hell from his category and conjure if it is that which i don't believe..So Why is he labeled an Enhancer using categories he can't achieve much power in?
But What about Netero's Hatsu how can he be n Enhancer using a conjuring ability that's dumb...Well dumb for somebody like Netero to be using hatsu that limits him so much.
Netero uses Emission, not Materialization, which is only one school away. The most obvious explanation would be that Reinforcement abilities decline in both quantity (amount of aura) and quality (you're physically weaker) as you age while aura-based abilities only decline as a function of quantity.
