MoCA setup, advice needed

[ Edited ]
Hello everyone, here's my current home network setup:
from twc coax feed (tv & internet) connects to PCT 1-Port Bi-Directional Cable TV, OTA, Amplifier Splitter Signal Booster with Passive Return (outside). Coax cable goes inside house to media box in closet, connects to a splitter BAMF 2-Way Coax Cable Splitter Bi-Directional MoCA 5-2300MHz. One coax cable goes to masterbedroom to another splitter that feeds cable modem (ubee) and hdvr set box (2 separate coax cables). Another coax cable (from closet media box) goes to family room that feeds regular cable box.
Inside closet media box, there is coax cable that go to bedroom2, but not in use. Im using powerline adapters to get internet to bedroom2.
My question: can I use a 4-way splitter at closet media box, leave masterbedroom and family room set up as they are and use a MoCA adapter in bedroom2 to connect a Gigabit switch via ethernet cable where a desktop and wireless ap connect to switch?

There cannot be any wholehouse dvr's.

You may not have eneough coaxial signal levels to allow for more splitter loss.

 You must use a POE filter between the outside line and first splitter to keep Moca in your house.

 

 Copy and paste the modems signal level page

 

 You also don't need any cable tv signals on  moca adapters, they work on just a chunk of cable as a ethernet to coax and back transcoder

There is no wholehouse dvr, just in masterbedroom. I have this amplifier at the outside box https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DJO5YTK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_he8NybS34P6JM

And I have this splitter in closet media box https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0113JAN8K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_ai8Nyb4ZB2N2M

There is a splitter right behind modem router and hdvr box. There are no more splitters.
I want to know if MoCA adapters would work if I connect them to "coax cable end" in family room and bed2?
I want to bypass the cable modem router
Im working on the signal strength information
