do all masses that a bishop offers in the EF have to be pontifical?

By definition (pontiff = bishop, supreme pontiff = pope), yes.  But they can be Pontifical Solemn or Pontifical Low.

Although I could be wrong: a bishops private Mass may not be called a pontifical Mass, I'm not sure.

Also, in extreme conditions (like under severe persecution), I assume a bishop could just celebrate the same low Mass, even without server, as any other priest, using the Missale.
