How to route internet traffic through different network adapters?

Hello, I'm a newbie and don't know much about networks but I need to do something that I'm not sure if can be done:

I have a bot (automation software, Jarvee) to perform certain actions for me in social media accounts, specifically Instagram. I had an old cellphone laying around so I'm using it as a hotspot to connect to the internet the laptop where the bot is running (I've figured this way I would get a 4G/Mobile IP instead of paying for proxies, this helps avoiding your automated account to get blocked by Instagram).

I want to connect the laptop to my router through a LAN cable to control it from my desktop using remote desktop, how do I tell windows to keep the internet traffic from Jarvee going through the wireless card/network adapter (which is connected to my cellphone's hotspot) and for everything else to use the LAN card?

I've googled for a long time trying different search queries with no luck, if there's a step by step tutorial on how to achieve this I'd like to know about it, thank you!
