No need for a visa run.

 

You can apply for a 30 day extension of stay at the immigration office in Chaengwattana. It costs 1,900 baht.

You currently have a "visa exempt entry" which is not a visa. Your permission to stay can be extended for 30 days at an immigration office in Thailand on payment of 1,900 baht.

 

If you want to do a border bounce from Bangkok for a new visa exempt entry, the best place to do it is generally considered Ban Phu Nam Ron, a crossing to Myanmar. There are many threads on it in the forum. Note that you can only get visa exempt entries when entering by land twice in a single calendar year. If you think you might stay a longer time, consider going to Vientiane for an actual tourist visa.

No, each visa exempt or tourist visa entry can only be extended once, by 30 days. After that time is up, you could do a border hop or visa run though.

Only if you were married to a Thai or had Thai children.  The 60-day extension is to "visit Thai family."  An extension for tourism is 30-days max.
