Here are more topics from the end of 2020. The situation hasn’t changed.

Possible, yes. But it would require a significant rewrite of the codebase, and is way more effort than the developers have had the time to implement. So possible, but currently not practical.

But there may be hope for you.
I think I saw recently that some of the devs ARE actually working on this.
It’s a “meh” thing for me personally.
I’d rather the devs spend time on other things.
Why does the “dark mode” thing get people so fired up? (rhetorical)
Isn’t the important thing editing text files?? :-)

Dark Mode is still in development: https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/issues/7692
It will be available someday.

please follow these steps, On how to enable dark mode in Notepad++.
Step 1: Open your Notepad++, and select “Settings” on the menu bar, and choose “Style configurator”.
Step 2: Select theme “Obsidian” (you can choose other dark themes)
Step 3: Go to “Global Styles” -> “Global override”, click the “background-color”
Step 4: Click “more colors”, and use: “red: 43, blue: 43, green: 43”.
Step 5: Check the “Enable global background-color” option.
I hope this information will be useful to you.
