Does the 4K monitor's refresh rate, 24Hz vs 60 Hz, matter in watching 4K offline movies or in youtube 4k streaming? Or the refresh rate is for gaming specs ?

I found 4k @30Hz to be disconcerting in normal operations like moving windows.
60hz is very good. You will need a displayport to do 60hz, assuming your monitor and display adapter are similarly capable.
If I use a hdmi to displayport adapter, does the adapter run in 60 Hz?

What is the make/model of the graphics card or motherboard you are using?
I presume your monitor has a dp input.
I think a hdmi to dp adapter is not going to do the job.
Asus Prime Z390-A. The displayport on the motherboard is broken, thats why I need a adapter
 
I use a EVGA GTX750ti which outputs 4k via DP @ 60hz.
You can buy them on ebay for about $70.
