There are other words out there like pūlehu for broil that are commonly used for specific types of heating food. However, there is a word hoʻomoʻa that can be used to mean "to cook" and I have heard it commonly for things like rice - hoʻomoʻa i ka laiki.
As for room, precontact the hale were built as one room dwellings. They had separate hale for different purposes like eating and sleeping for example, and even more specific separate hale for men and women to eat and sleep separately. Families back then actually lived in kauhale which is a group of such hale.
