Toddleroo by North States - We use it to partition our living room. Our 3 yr is tall enough to wear 5t tops and pants, but he stays on his side.
I’ve seen it at Buy Buy Baby, so you might be able to use a coupon.
Toddleroo by North States Superyard 6 Panel Baby Play Yard/Barrier with Wall Mount Kit: Create a safe play area or extra wide baby gate anywhere. 38.5" - 201" wide, 18.5 ft. enclosure (26" tall, Gray) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JGDGG23/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_8DE5N3FMN8YX87VSCWW9
I used this gate for some stairs that are similar to yours going down. I only needed three of the six panels. You might be able to use all six and go from the right of the stairs up over to the left of that door. It’d be a giant barrier but it’d cover both sets of stairs.
You could always use a play fence with wall mounts around the base of the stairs

You’re gonna have to get creative. Getting plants out of their reach is part of toddler proofing the home. I have a baby fence along a wall that has most of my plants.
I found it useful to sacrifice appearances for a minute and use one of those "baby corral" things but opened up to act as a sort of fence. Something like this, put up in front of the TV area.
I used this and it worked great. U can make different shapes with it and open it up and let a wall be one of the side to make it bigger. 4 years later and still use a section to keep my boxer out of certain rooms.
Whatever sub you end up getting I would still gate off your entire area containing your LRC speakers, subs, tv and AV equip. Just way too much stuff for them or the toys to get into.
I used something like this...
As for the downfiring subs, I have the SVS cylinder subs and a carpet and zero issues.
We use a play yard enclosure around the steps instead of a gate. Here is a link to one like it and no it is not an affiliate link play yard gate

The link posted above didn't work for me. This is the item though.
I don't know of a book that I can suggest but here is a list of websites where you can educate yourself for free but there are countless free resources for freely educating yourself.free education list
My husband is also big into gaming and we have 2 little ones. We're currently renting so that tv stand table let's us mount it without actually attaching it to a wall. And we just put the fence around the bottom shelfs so they don't get into the consoles.

There are also versions with Gates built in, which you could put at the top of the stairs. We have one and love it.
Might be overkill... But I put one of these to divide the kitchen and living room. Similar to the pic here .. u block entrance and the rail as well . (In case baby might fit thru rails, can't really see if wide enough or not)
Maybe look into getting some wall mounted baby gates (there are some where they are anchored to the walls, and much more stable). If you get some of those, is there an area of the main room or kitchen or something else that you could cordon off as a "yes" area?
I know nothing about this product, but am posting because of the mounting option: https://smile.amazon.com/North-States-Superyard-6-Panel-Barrier/dp/B07JGDGG23 -- free standing baby pen style gates, I found our kid would just push them around. But I'm pretty sure if it were anchored to the wall, then this would have lasted much longer.
Re: the not walking, our kid started walking at 12mo, but was climbing much earlier than that -- she flipped her pack n play over before she could walk.
I will say, at least based on my kid, the gate/fence/safety area solution will not last much beyond 2yrs age, so it's probably also worth really working on reinforcing what the kid can and can't play with as much and as early as possible.

Have you looked into what my wife and I affectionately call baby jails?
Talking about things like this, this, and this
I just did a quick search, there are plenty more options along those lines. They dont have to stop the child if you're around, just be a deterrent.
This one is plastic and extensible to whatever length you want:https://www.amazon.com/North-States-Superyard-6-Panel-Barrier/dp/B07JGDGG23/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=toddleroo+play+yard&qid=1620850733&s=baby-products&sr=1-6
Each panel is about three feet, and you can keep adding on pieces to any length you want (including the 102" you're wanting).
They sell sets in 2, 6, and 8 panels. And they have wall mounting pieces and pieces with gates.
This one mounts to the wall, looks like you just pull the whole panel away to walk through https://www.amazon.com/North-States-Superyard-6-Panel-Barrier/dp/B07JGDGG23/ref=sr_1_3_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=toddleroo+panel&qid=1615399172&s=baby-products&sr=1-3-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExSjVLOEpON0ZBQVNJJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjIzMDM0MUxPSktJRFlWTjhOQiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNTI4MzU4T1VMRE1ET1pNUVQ3JndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
We used one like this. At first we used it to keep baby in, then later we opened it up and it kept baby away from the desk in the living room
I'm pretty sure it is this one, its nice and sturdy. We also have this one that is a little bit lighter weight but is easier to re configure. It is currently around our Christmas tree.
Plastic playpen panels that you can shape around your pool steps, such as:
We have this one from Amazon. It’s great for both indoor and outdoor use!
I’m afraid unless the Amazon was there first that the dogs, depending on the breed could be a real threat to Peter. Cats are the same, but even more likely to be a danger because they can easily find away to get on top of a cage or harass a parrot inside a cage until it hurts itself out of panic. Parrots are prey animals, but they are also very curious. As far as I know there is nothing you can put on the edge of the cage to stop an Amazon that you leave outside of the cage from getting down to the floor. I will say though, that the parrot on the floor, if unsupervised is also in danger of other things, like being mistakenly stepped on by a human or getting to an electric cable and chewing it and electrocuting it.
We don’t have other pets, but unless we leave the house or it is time for us to go to bed, we leave our bird on top of the cage. She rarely climbs down, except towards nesting season (even though we don’t breed her, she will start searching for a nest)when she does it so much that we had to buy a tall toddler enclosure with a gate to put around her cage until she gets out of nesting season so she doesn’t start chewing the wood trim or get to an electric plug. Then we remove it after that period is over and she goes back to normal.
I don’t believe it is fair to keep parrots in a cage all the time (large flighted aviaries are different), it is cruel, especially for the highly intelligent birds that are companion parrots which are naturally curious and have already been denied flight. You may have to get a separate room with a tall playpen or another cage where the dogs can’t get into if you cannot supervise your bird so it won’t get on the ground. You could also keep the dogs out of the room where your bird’s cage is for whenever you allow the bird to come out and climb on the floor(supervised of course). A toddler fence/door could work for you if you have enough room, but it has to be tall enough that the dogs can’t get over it,have a gate you can open and shut so you can get in and out and be made of such hard plastic that the bird cannot chew it. Amazon parrots are extremely social and they will not like being kept in a separate room for long unless you are with them, neither will your dogs, so this might be the best option for you.
This is what we used for years:
Hope this helps!
