I'm building a pair of speakers for my office. It's small-ish - 15' X 18' but it has a high, "cathedral", ceiling.
In addition to being an office, it will be something of a recording studio; transcribing old reel to reel tapes to digital and doing some light music production.
You would need a 4k disc player.
However, all 4k disc players will also play regular BDs, DVDs, and audio CDs.

A standard blue-ray plays movies in 1080p with a regular blue-ray player and any HD tv. A 4k blue-ray plays movies in 4k (about 4 times the resolution of 1080p) on a 4k blue ray player and 4k tv.

No, 4K blu-ray doesn't play on standard blu-ray players, that's why some 4K blu-rays comes with a standard blu-ray disc as well. A 4K Blu-Ray player can play a standard blu-ray disc, but a standard Blu-Ray player can't play a 4K disc

Yes. They tend to come from seller companies that specialisze in such multi region gear, such as 220 electronics.
