Move and resize windows on macOS with keyboard shortcuts and snap areas
I use Rectangle too, but it's pretty annoying how many apps Rectangle has issues with. Apparently it's a macOS thing. So, Steam doesn't work at all. Facetime doesn't support switching between screens. etc. Another example with Messages: https://github.com/rxhanson/Rectangle/issues/842

config karabiner with ease
Karabiner has already been mentioned here but I'll add that goku (https://github.com/yqrashawn/GokuRakuJoudo) is THE way to setup Karabiner and it can be hard to overcome the extremely verbose and unergonomic default json config of Karabiner otherwise. Goku also makes it trivial to add shortcuts which are activated by quickly pressing one key while another is held. I use this for the kind of launch mode described in the OP. eg. w + e = editor (Intellij), w + r = chrome, w + f = firefox.. The drawback to these shortcuts is that they can unintentionally be activated when regularly typing since we don't always release a key before pressing the next. That's only happened seldomly for me though since "w" isn't a frequently used letter and I've set the shortcut activation window pretty low so the w + key has to be pressed essentially immediately after w.
Similarly, I use q + w for previous tab, q + e for next tab, and s+d to open the clipboard history from Alfred
For my Gnomies, the Run-or-raise extension  is stellar. It does exactly what it says: you bind a key combo to a launcher command, and optionally define a windowname or wm_class query to check for the existence of the program before it's launched. If it's running it's raised, if it's not then it's run. It has options for the window behaviour after toggling, optionally minimising the programs etc.
I can't rate it highly enough. It helped me finally step away from my decade-long i3wm-adhd addition, where everything else failed.
