Does a high HS CRP point to cancer or coronary artery disease?

Not really. CRP is a marker of inflammation and not used for diagnosis. High levels are associated with higher risk of coronary disease and stroke, however it can be high in setting of infections and inflammatory diseases as well.

Can only using stress test clarify existence of coronary artery disease (blokage due to high LDL, low HDL)?

Stress test is good. Stress test is designed to detect coronary artery disease. It is not a perfect test, but very good.
