How to show proccess output in text box in other frame using Python tkinter

I’m trying to write the ‘ping’ output to a text box that will be
created in the ‘output’ tkinter frame
When I press the ‘Submit’ button while writing the output to file.

Questions:

1: Is there a way to place the text box inside the ‘output’ frame?
2: How can I print lines from files inside the ‘output’ frame?
3: How can I use threading or multiproccess to display the output in realtime?
