Do these two words mean something?

Yes, they're both standard words, but they mean different things. "Wilderness" is a noun referring to a wild or untamed area (see http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/wilderness ), whereas "wildness" is a noun referring to the state of being wild, in any of its senses (see http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/wild ).
