I just received the E3200 to find out it has to be connect via wired which I was under the impression it was wireless. If I choose to keep it will it produce a stronger signal from the CR1000A

E3200 and CR1000A's wireless radio implementations are largely similar despite CR1000A has replaced one 802.11ax 5GHz radio with 6GHz (i.e. so called WiFi 6E).

E3200 is not the official extender for CR1000A despite wired backhaul capability. CE1000A is the official extender for CR1000A, which may or may not be available for purchase depending on your region. CE1000A can achieve wireless backhaul with CR1000A/B.

Notwithstanding, I do not recommend extenders to be wireless backhauled to the router for performance and latency considerations.
