Connect the routers wan port to the hot spot on the phone. Some routers have this built in, otherwise you need a device that turns the hotspot into a ethernet signal.

If the router and phone support RNDIS then possibly, but the problem with using a phone for this is Internet sharing is not designed to be kept turned on.  It might discharge the battery if the router cannot provide enough power to the phone, also Internet sharing can periodically turn off.

Your phone contract may also not allow tethering, in which case doing so could result in your contract being cancelled or maybe a fee.

Dedicated 4/5G routers also tend to have better reception than phones, due to being able to use much larger antennas.

Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Ubiquiti nanoHD (~700Mbit peak throughput)
ISP: Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (66Mbit) + Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra. (56Mbit)

what if i activate a package (there is a 30day unlimited 20Mbps for cheap), remove the sim from the phone and then connect it to the router using a cellular modem

Same issue, it depends if the router supports a cellular modem either in RNDIS or serial mode.

Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Ubiquiti nanoHD (~700Mbit peak throughput)
