You could try one of these for £9.87 delivered. In addition you will need a HDMI lead and either a USB port on the TV or a USB phone charger to power the device.

If it’s hdr it should have a hdmi and so should your sky box, if not time to get on to them and get them to update it for you
Have you not got an aerial?
Does the LG TV have a sat connector ? If it does I would retire the sky box and connect it up to the TV.

Yes a sky box without a subscription works as a freesat box, you can't record without a sub though. Channels will be limited to cbbc, cbeebies, citv, pop, tinypop and possibly 1 or 2 I can't remember. It won't include the premium kids channels like cartoon network, nick etc.

Not sure, I assume you have to run a satellite setup which gives you the EPG.

You should be able to enable both freeview and satellite in the tuning menu, on my LG you select which one to view from the programme guide.

Mine came with a scart socket on a little lead that plugs in the back to connect scart leads to.
