Yes, 90 degree bends with a fiber optic HDMI cable is ok.
If the "equalizer" is a signal booster that should work. I prefer not to use them because if the signal has degraded a lot by time it get to the booster or there is any noise on the cable that will also get boosted.
There are also HDMI to cat-5/6 balun transmitters too.
You plug an HDMI cable into one end and a cat-5 or cat-6 ethernet cable into the other and transmit the HDMI signal over a network cable to a receiver at the other end that another HDMI cable plugs into to go to your display. Down side to this is price. Most Balun's are sold each, you need two (a transmitter and receiver) and they are around $300 each.
