Is it possible to create a WIFI hotspot and reroute WIFI through a cellphone. I do it all the time using my mobile data but it switches off the wifi connection if I try and do it with WIFI.

Nope, WiFi can either broadcast or receive.

You can probaly get it working you u can connect a network cable.

Very possible on a 2018 flagship device, like a Mate20pro. Used it a couple of times already.

Device- and manufacturer-specific, so NOT a universal function on all devices.
