optical is the best bet ...

Would digital zoom make my photo's look like they were taken with a different mm lens as described below:

1x digital = 144mm

2x digital = 180mm

3x digital = 216mm

4x digital = 252mm

5x digital = 288mm

yes

And the final question: If I buy a compact camera with a 300mm optical zoom lens, will I be able to zoom in as much as my current camera without the quality loss?

generally speaking, the 300mm camera would be able to "zoom" in more than your current camera without quality loss ...
