Hi,
You can use Stored proc to transfer data through linked server and call the scheduled job to call Stored proc periodically.

You can use the SQL Server Replication and configure the Oracle database as the Publisher and the SQL Server database as the Subscriber and then schedule the Snapshot job to run in a weekly basis.

Why not? You can set the Snapshot to run on a non-working period.

You can use the Database Wizard feature in SSMS. Personally I don't like it but maybe fits in what you are looking for.

I've used replication extensively.  It's not a viable solution for this many tables.  Stored procs aren't stable enough.
