Is it possible to quick move issue to the bottom/top of big backlog without drag N drop?

The quickest way is to use shortcuts: . That's unfortunately it.

Are there any plans to enhance this? I know that having larger backlogs is not exactly best practice, but it sometimes does happen and then it would be great to pre-filter the backlog prior to planning. Or are what's the recommended "YouTrack-way" of handling larger backlogs? (except going through 200 tickets with all developers at every planning meeting)

And the shortcuts don't seem to work anymore as well. In addition to Ctrl+arrow up, Ctrl+Pos1 could move to top instead of one item up.

For quite a while, there's an option to drag-n-drop issues in the backlog to sort them. Please see the documentation:
