Sure if your gateway router lan ports are full you can add a switch there for more ports, then connect port to powerline and powerline where you want to extend wireless coverage and more ports.
Then just use the wireless router you have as AP (connect via lan port, disable its dhcp server and put its lan IP on same network as your devices)
Yeah use same SSID, same password - might want to put on different channel depending on distance between your other APs and possible interference. For example your main wireless could be on channel 1 and your AP in this are could be on channel 11
Now as you roam about with wireless devices they will auto connect to the strongest signal. You should never actually even notice when you switch between AP. Now your wired devices will all have wired bandwidth to rest of your network and internet. And wireless bandwidth will only have to be shared between devices on the same AP.
If at all possible I would run an actual wire to where this AP is going to be vs powerline - but powerline is going to be better than wireless that is for sure
