AC3000 adding to NETGEAR Orbi Home WiFi System: AC2200 Tri-Band Home Network - Router & Wall Plug Sa

I currently have the NETGEAR Orbi Home WiFi System: AC2200 Tri-Band Home Network - Router & Wall Plug Satellite running in my home.  I would like to add an AC3000 to the system.  My question is:  Can the (added) AC3000 be used wirelessly and still allow me to use the Ethernet ports on that AC3000 for a direct connect to and additional item?  OR  Must the AC3000 be connectly directly to my Cable Modem?   Thanks, very kindly, in advance!

The router unit can not be used as a satellite but you can connect any version of the satellite to a orbi router.
