I'm looking to build a site in EE5 and was wondering if I could get some text editor recommendations?

I've used WYGWAM with EE2 and enjoyed it.

The rich text editor with EE5 actually seems good, except I can't find a way to upload a file and make a link to it. Would I make my users first upload a file from File Manager, then link to it?

The RTE with EE5 is OK, but as you observe has some limitations regarding handling of images.

The alternatives are all add-ons that provide a wrapper to some other Rich Text Editor source.

My personal favourite is Wyvern, but all are good options.
