My pc is on my room on the second floor and the connection is kinda poor sometimes and i get high ping due to everyone on my house being connected, however, i am unable to connect an ethernet cable because it's too far and messy. Could I set up another router/modem only for my room?

it would be from another company, not the same company my modem has

That would require a whole second set of wiring from the outside wall.
And if you can do that, you can run an ethernet cable.

See if you can configure the second modem as a wireless repeater, my fritz, being perhaps double band, allows you to do it all wireless.
