Does the Prius's level 6 option repeat the radio signal through the roof
antenna or are you still dependent on the cell phone's antenna?

Neither; if you have a roof antenna for the cell phone, it has to be
connected directly to the cell phone.  The AM/FM antenna that comes with
the car is not designed for cellphone frequencies.

wire
under the lid.

Anyway, that's what I do.

If the phone rings, presuming you have Bluetooth, do you have to touch the
phone or just touch a button on the steering wheel to take the call?
