You would need to know what protocols these games use to set up the QoS properly.
In the case of Skype, it relies on UDP (protocol ID). Under applications, you would use RTP. Note that under the DSCP and 802.1p ranges, the higher numbers mean higher priority for that traffic.
I don't know enough about your network environment to be able to offer more advice than that. Given how many options you have under QoS, you may want to spend some time with the user manual and/or ZTE tech support on this one.

Again, I can provide some general guidelines, but without more info about your network environment, I can't get into too many specifics.
Google Hangouts uses it's own proprietary protocol (which I don't see listed), TCP and UDP. Facetime uses SIP and RTP, TCP and UDP.
Controling torrents using QoS is extremely difficult, as it uses both TCP and UDP and often hundreds of different ports. Your best options is to give VoIP and Web browsing the highest priorities, and leave torrents along.
So you could create one rule for VoIP, using RTP, TCP/UDP, maximize throughput and voice options; and another rule for Web browsing, using DNS, TCP/UDP, maximize reliability and video options. Typically, voice is the highest available 802.1p priority, followed by video.
Hope that helps.

You would have to put the ZTE in bridge mode, and use the TPLink as the router so you can access its QoS features. Essentially, the ZTE would simply pass all the Internet traffic from your ISP straight to the TPLink, which you would then use to connect all your wired and wireless clients. You can't leave them both configured as routers -- that would double NAT your home network, which would create problems not so much with data speeds as with certain services not working properly. You'd have to set up port forwarding on both, which for some things like torrents would be a pain to try and configure. http://www.practicallynetworked.com/networking/fixing_double_nat.htm
