They are these weird spots. I don’t know when they appeared, but I moved the plant into Quarantine. Are they fatal? Is it a Fungi, insect, Bacteria? Please answer this question, because I am not too educated on Avocado diseases.

Thank you
I am fairly sure that your avacado is in the beginning stage of an infestation by a hard scale insect called Heart Shaped Scale. Spray both sides of the leaves, the stem, branches and trunk with Neem Oil once a week for 3 weeks and maintain a close vigil on the tree. With a little luck you may have caught the problem before it became severe, but treat the plant ASAP.
