I need to use my ADSL2+ Moder Router TP-LINK TD-W8961D to connect to my WIFI network.
I want to connect my PC that has LAN card to my TP-LINK router through RJ45
And I want the TP-LINK to give Internet that it receives through my WiFi network.

Now I know this is possible I just can't remember how to go about it!
What is this function called by the way? Bridge/Access Point?

Just connect all Wi-Fi clients directly to the to to tplink. That's the easiest way to solve your problem.
Also, you didn't give ANY clue how your current Wi-Fi is set up, so talking about bridging/accesspoint is of no use at this point.

I do not understand!
I need to plug my PC through RJ45 to TP-LINK which is only connected to Power AC.
Internet I have on my Other ModemRouter about 5 meters away.
The reason I cannot connect PC to other router is the cable is too short.
So I connect PC with 2 meters cable to TP-LINK and want to connect TP-LINK to internet through wifi
WIFI is configured to broadcast SSID and asks for password.

That function is called bridging indeed for the most simple version (tp link connect wirelessly to the other internet modem, passed data to the cable connections).
Another method is called WDS (Wireless Distribution System), which includes sharing the internet on Wi-Fi too. It is described here: www.tp-link.com/lk/article/?faqid=327
But it might not work, as you read it correctly, it depends on both sides working in unison.
Easier would have been to spend only a few bucks for a longer network cable.
