Fiber to the ONT. Then copper from there on.

Yes, we try to use existing coax when ever possible.  We do test the
signal levels to verify they are good at the jacks we are using.

Every house is different.  I've done all of the above. I usually try to
go for the cleanest option first.  I've done a lot of wall fishing but
there are instances where It just is not possible.

I always try to run a wire from the ONT to the original demarc and feed
the whole house.  This is preferable because It keeps me from having to
touch the inside wiring which could be asking for trouble in some homes.
