Buy an Xbox one s. It's easily found for less than $200. If you're interested in games, get a one x for maximum resolution gaming on consoles.

This will also solve your 4k streaming (roku versus Apple problem), 4k blue ray, and comes with the right HDMI cable.

Order cables from Monoprice. As long as you get the correct spec for your need a digital cable is a digital cable. Soundbars are oftentimes optical but not always. Your budget for said sound bar greatly impacts the recomendations. Start here https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-soundbar/

I've had Monoprice certified 4K HDMI cables fail in the 18 Gbps mode.

Wired Ethernet will definitely be a faster (Assuming gigabit) and more reliable connection. Cat6 is unneeded. Cat5e is fine.

It all depends on what you want to do and how you consume media. I don't have an LG TV but I would recommend first starting with the manual. Smart TV in general offer the ability to run applications to get content from other services such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, etc. Take a look around and see if there are any gaps that are not in the LG store that you want. Your Roku, Apple TV and the like offer similar ability to run apps and get content from other sources. Many duplicate functions or offer a better interface, faster updates etc. I know Apple TV offers the ability to cast certain content from a mac laptop or iphone to the TV. I would urge doing some research before purchasing any additional hardware to make sure it will do what your wanting to do before buying.
