if i understood well your Q i can either bid 5m directly, invite with 4m or stop in 3m after 2NT - 3 clubs and now pass or bid 3 diamonds

no meaning at all; the 2NT puppet is used to deliver a minor suit, either strong or weak

3 would show slam interest with clubs :)

“2NT has shown ♦ suit OK”
no! 2NT is simply puppet to 3♣

At the table it was easier because LHO threw a spade (originally she had 3) before reaching this position, so i played a small card from hand towards the J and she had to go up with an honor

Craig: from where did you get those figures? is it more or less the same if suit is HH versus XXX or HHX versus XX)? (X means honor)

in real life West did open 1 and, after getting a 2 response, simply rebid 2NT. My Q is the following: what would you have rebid in responder's seat? Let's suppose you bid 3 and then listened to 4. Now what?

i meant rebiding a minor, not pass/opening choice

rebiding a minor suit 5 card looks awkward, like in this post of mine, too:

That was my vote, but in my opinion 4NT is also sensible

the problem is that opener is more willing to go forward in case of a 5 bid

Here is her hand:
