[PLUG] Fios Quantum Gateway Router / Cabling type

With Internet business service, Verizon wants me to rent (or buy) a Fios Quantum Gateway Router. This looks like the same appliance I have at home. Do we need one if we set up oue own firewall? On the other hand, how good is it as a firewall, and if we get one, is an additional firewall advised?

Also, any opinons on Cat 5e vs. Cat 6 cabling? The office is a bit under 1,000 sq. ft, so we won't have long cable runs.

Thank you very much in advance.
