I have a few rooms in my house with 2 Cat5e and 2 Cat6 with female keystone jacks ready to put into a gang.

However I've also run a single Coax RG59 to each location as well. It seems most people tell me to shy away from the F-connector and use BNC instead.

Would I buy a male BNC connector, then a female-female BNC keystone jack to do this? That's what it seems like even though my Cat5e cables could be directly terminated into the keystone without crimping or needing a male connector as well.

Either will work as well for you. Either way, you terminate the cable with a plug and connect it to a barrel connector in the plate.
