Unless your cables have a lot of wear and tear, I don't think they're the root cause of your issues. If they are a bit long in the tooth (two seasons or more), then it wouldn't hurt to replace them... as well as the housing.

Moving on the the derailleur, let me suggest you start over and follow Shimano's step-by-step tech procedure for positioning and adjusting your Ultegra FD:

If after attempting to get them dialed in using Shimano's instructions it is still giving you trouble, we can take another look at it.

If you really don't like the way the STI levers work don't struggle with them: just get a bar-end shifter for the front and be done with it. You can leave the STI lever as it is for the brake.
