Yep this will probably be the easiest solution and better than shitty wifi.

But if you are planning on staying long in your new office, you are better off fixing that cable

Connectivity is full its ping that's degraded not sure if a repeater will fix the issue as it will still be a long distance from the hub

3. No

4. Never

I'd either use the mains like honey suggested, drill through the floor or just use a long cable tucked away along the wall.

I've used a 100m Cat 7 before and it wasn't that bad at all. Definitely better than any wifi repeater/extender.

yeah cable always better than wifi

Might want to look into WiFi extenders. You can also buy a WiFi extender (PPPoE = Power-Point Protocol over Ethernet) which also has a option to plug in a cable. For example: https://www.tp-link.com/nl/products/details/cat-18_TL-WPA4220T-KIT.html (Might be dutch, but you can also search for TP-Link TL-WPA4220T KIT in your own country).

That's not a repeater, it's a powerline adapter. It will send the connection through the power lines in your house. Your ping won't be affected that much.

Don't drill up into bedroom, instead drill from office -> bedroom, then drill a hole in wall and drop your ethernet cord down the wall towards your router, then drill a hole in the water where the hub is and fish the ethernet cord out. Then just add a wall plate. Shouldn't be hard as long as there isn't a fire block in the wall. Use a stud finder to find out before you start drilling.
