In response to your question on range, a wireless router will not effectively cover that distance. Instead youl will need something like this:

In terms of adding a wireless router, yes, in theory you can, but this depends on what cables you have and what needs you require (what is connecting to what and how, also what cables have 'died'?)

Unless they are fixed in place, internal Cat5 is easily replaced (and no sensible IT engineer would secure them in place, for this very reason).

The following assumes that it was well laid in the first place: Remove the RJ45 from one end, tie a piece of string to it firmly and pull carefully from the other end, leaving the end of the string within reach. Grab some fresh Cat5 without an RJ45, tie the free end of the string to it and pull it through. Stick some RJ45s on it and you're done. New cables.
