3 things on column-edit and multi-edit modes
First, is a question on multi-edit (multi-caret, ctrl+click) mode:
in several places users showed to want a shortcut to place a new caret on same column as current one, on the upper or lower line. Similarly to how it’s possible in column-edit mode.
Do you think the request for a command/message for such a shortcut is suitable to be made at Scintilla feature tracker?
Second, on column-edit (rectangular mode), I placed a feature request at Scintilla to make possible moving the column of carets with arrow keys:
Third, another feature request on multi-edit mode, to make
deletekey delete EOL-s
You can vote /comment/ help implement them if you want.

Try the plugin BetterMultiSelection. It adds some of the features you mentioned.
The answer to my question is probably no;
I have found it’s easy to create a script (to which can assign the shortcut), using the following ingredients:
SCI_ADDSELECTION SCI_GETCURRENTPOS SCI_GETANCHOR SCI_GETCOLUMN SCI_LINEFROMPOSITION SCI_FINDCOLUMN
But it might be worth having it natively in Npp.
