Now it can take 2-3 minutes or even freeze outright and I have to restart for it to finally start.

Therefore i launched TERMINAL , et typed 'find / -iname *.app' to list all apps on my computer. By removing from that list every obvious legit apps, here is what remains (I have simplified the folder names for most apps):

Do you have any idea what could be causing the slowdown? (possible remote spyware / malware?) Thanks ! :D

My first step, without going thru' your list, would be to get AVG free and MalwareBytes and use both, separately, to scan you Mac. Then see what comes up and follow its suggestions
