root access – Unlock Google apps (phone dialer etc.) on Samsung Galaxy

I’ve been using my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for a while now, and am happy with the hardware.
I managed to remove all Samsung bloatware (Bixby etc.) using ADB, but I am not able to install apps like Google Phone.

I heard that through rooting phone I’ll be able to access those apps.

  • Are there any other ways for installing those apps without rooting?
  • Is there a minimalistic or safe way of rooting phone without replacing its core OS parts?
