I'm posting this answer from a late 2010 11" MacBook Air running El Capitan, and I have no performance issues. It runs very well.

If you've been hacked, the keylogger has to report. It can do this either immediately, or store locally and periodically spew it to some network destination.

I would also simply go to the Apple store (Genius Bar) where normally they install whatever you want. But I am surprised you could run El Capitan. I have a MacBook Pro (June 2010) running 10.7.5 and the Genius bar said I can only go to Josemite. Also, keep in mind that basically all previous versions to Office 2016 might bring you trouble.

My understanding is that if you bring the Mac to an Apple Store they will install it for you. The S/L requirement is to access the store, not as a way to charge you $20.
