    currently i have modem--ethernet--router1--wireless--router2(WDS)

    i had to setup wds in our bedroom because router1 is in a bad spot and we were only getting 50KBps throughput from our bedroom. so i setup wds in our bedroom which has bumped up our throughput to ~1.5Mbps

    now if i were to run ethernet from router1 to router2 would that enhance my router2 wireless throughput? or would wireless clients on router2 still get the crappy throughput while any hardwired clients on router2 would get full 100mbps?

    Of course the throughput will increase ;). You'll get the same speed you'd get connecting to router1

    Yes, you would disable wds, and cable the second router to the network. Leave the same SSID/Security, and you will have what is considered an infrastructure network. Your PC will roam between them seamlessly, and you will have better throughput all around.
