Maybe you should add the option using efibootmgr or refind. Check these out:

if I'm using the efibootmgr, it means that I must try to using grub instead of systemdboot?

I was trying to make a boot options, and using the path. There's no such linux boot options there.

If I'm using the grub, should I uninstall and remove the orphaned package of bootctl beforehand?

If you're giving grub a try, you will not be using systemd-boot, but the advantage is that you can leave what bootctl did before as grub will put a new directory with a new efi binary in your efi partition. One more advantage with grub is that it will not meddle with your Windows bootloader. Once you have installed the grub efi with efibootmgr, you should get into the UEFI firmware settings and change the boot options order.
