So turn the Hub into modem mode, connect my router of choice into the Hub via Ethernet, and then connect all my devices into the new router?
Would doing this effect the overall download/upload speeds or add latency? I'm looking for a 'more gaming style' router so to say.
Yes that’s correct.
“Gaming” routers are just marketing BS.

The VM device that connects to the VM network is called a hub, not a router. That is because it comprises of 4 components, 1 modem (to essentially convert DOCIS coax signal to Ethernet), 2 router, 3 network switch and 4 Wireless Access Point.
You can turn off functions 2, 3 & 4 above and run the hub in what is termed ‘modem mode’.
Then you can connect your own devices that provide functions 2, 3 & 4.
