Hi and welcome.

First question:
-You may face network issues...
If your network works well, streaming from local NAS (for example), even 4k files is fast, without buffer, etc.
-Restart minix and router first, before doing other procedures.
-do not use for now wifi, use cable

I also advice you install latest kodi 18.5 (from play store for example) and if you want later you can also try latest u9h CE ROM: (it is working very well for me)

Second question:
Yes you can set kodi to read your movies (for example):
https://androidpcreview.com/how-to-setup-kodi-the-right-way/

You can use bs player for android also to test videos but kodi is much better, the best media player i know.

Third question:
Yes it is possible to connect a keyboard and mouse (maybe your keyboard is not recognized), try with another
I use wifi keyboard and mouse (with dongle), but i think bluetooth also works.

what section i need to click on KODI ro scan my network as i click on network file system NFS nothing happend
Are you using a NAS?
or desktop with windows?

Tell us details about your server

You can use also SMB but i notice that NFS is faster.

I use a NAS but it you are using a server with windows it is better SMB: (i searched and i think it is better for you smb...)

Check this: (see step by step and point 3 - Turn Windows features on )
https://kodi.wiki/view/SMB/Windows

Also i forgot this:

If you can add a static ip for your server (win 10) on your router

or (other alternative but not good, not recommended on your server itself)

The problem you have may be configuration...
If you have also switch there is no problem (switch just connects devices , receive and Deliver data, etc).
I also have switches and there is no problem.
If you have both devices connected @1GB/s speed is also good.

Recommended:
Cat5e cable minimum to have that gigabit connection (100 meters lenght).

Double check your router configurations.
Last resort factory reset router
