I believe something like this is already implemented natively in GTK and is active on all SWT trees. However, this Ctrl+F is not acting as a filter, but as a jump to. It also doesn't search recursively in the tree AFAIK.
There is ongoing work on this topic for CNF trees: https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/93784/

- Shift + Shift for open resources is so much easier to us compared to our shortcut
You mean Ctrl+Shift+R ?
- Alt+Enter is also easier to reach compared with Ctrl+1
That's arguable. Ctrl+1 can be performed with a single hand, Alt+Enter is not
Overall, I don't think the key mapping have that much impact. And several Eclipse users moving to IJ have already claimed they prefer the Eclipse mapping.

- Debugger is much better then ours it adds the value of the variable into the editor after the code. Also our default Eclipse debug perspective is IMHO not very usable.
+1.
There are bugs open about that:
* https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=329666 : this one is technically challenging and probably requires a lot of efforts, that said, it doesn't seem impossible. I think it's currently failing at hitting the top of someone's todo-list . This seems like a good FEEP candidate.
* https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=464898 : there is some discussion, ideas but this is stuck by our (ie Platform UI contributors) usual difficulties of turning an opinionated discussion into actionable items.
