1-3 are all acceptable options IMO.
Your existing chiller can be refitted w/ couplings to sit lower in the kettle as well.
option 4 sounds like a retreat or surrender, unnacceptable!
Try a no chill batch? Set the kettle / keggle in a large tub of water, rinse repeat and add ice to finish. Always a way my friend.
