15' - depending upon the quality of the original cables you may not need to replace them. Test them first - if you see sparkles or lines or don't get an image, then you need to replace. Otherwise, it's just adding more available cable bandwidth that you *may* need in the future. The pinouts for the standard speed cables and the high speed cables are exactly the same.
At this point, Ethernet or non-Ethernet doesn't matter. High speed is a really good idea. Testing every cable before installing in-wall is an absolute must. Too many people cover-up the cables with drywall and then find out they have a defective cable. Conduit is an even better choice because you can pull the cable after the drywall is installed.
