    So I dropped my phone and the screen broke (galaxy s4). However the led light works and I can still hear sounds from it.

    I need to activate my tethering on it so I can download tools to back stuff up. However, since the screen is broken I can't install anything in the phone, USB debugging is disabled as well...

    Is there anyway I can connect the phone to my computer through the normal USB cable and activate the tethering?!

    With USB debugging deactivated, probably not.

    I assume you have Samsung j2 and your phone is not locked
    things required
    otg cable
    keyboard
    Samsung j2
    no lock gesture or pin

    insert the keyboard with otg to j2 phone
    and press numlock to unlock your scree and open settings anyhow take screen shot or
    anyhow try to remove the lock, and write down the keyboard updown pattern on paper to open hotspot like mine
    numlock //to open default screen lock
    hold right // to select app drawer
    enter // to go inside drower
    15 keyboard right key //to navigate to settings : you may have as many depend on app installed minimum is 15
    enter key // to select setting: once you got inside setting below keys are same
    4 down // to hotspot option inside settings
    enter //inside hotspot option
    down
    up
    enter
    enter // you can off your hotspot if you on earlier
    right
    enter// your hotsopt is on now

    or you can simply install hotspot by installing ac hotspot app from play store
