    You need to put down new subflooring
    5/8" tongue and groove. If real uneven you will need to remove original floor.

    Would probably need to get under house to see what issues there are that made it unlevel. Might need to have it jacked!

    Floors will need to be leveled. Old house has settled over time. You can check if it has stopped and see if any structural problems exist. Otherwise you can level the floors with a floor leveling compound then glue and screw new plywood to get a flat level floor.

    the wood floor will have to be leveled first, then you can install vinyl planking or laminate
