It's the time a small packet is sent from your server, to the remote server, who responds back. When that response is received, you have the Latency in ms (calculated time of sending and receiving the response).
Overall, the higher the latency, usually the slower the connection (but not always).

The ping is the small packet I mentioned.

You don't give more bandwidth to an .exe. You usually analyze the traffic, and find something unique (IP address, protocol, etc), and give that priority in your router (usually, ppl don't have these expensive routers though)
In the old days with 28k modems, there were programs that could do that, but with current broadband connections, those programs became obsolete.

Only really expensive routers can do it, it's in the QoS menu.

Also, if you're sure you only need it on this computer, and you're sure, only one .exe needs priority, buy this program: https://www.netlimiter.com
Of course, if you meant with "more bandwith for a .exe" as in, more bandwidth than your ISP provider stated, it won't help.
If you are using more internet devices, it also won't help.

mmmmm i didn't find QoS i find only this:

Bandwidth Control Rules List
ID	Description	Egress Bandwidth(Kbps)	Ingress Bandwidth(Kbps)	Enable	Modify
Min	Max	Min	Max
The current list is empty.
Add New...

Bandwidth Control Settings
Enable Bandwidth Control:	
Line Type:	   ADSL          Other
Egress Bandwidth:	
Ingress Bandwidth:2048

That's bandwidth control, of EVERYTHING, not filtered by protocol or other identifying marks. So it's not useful for you.
