what I want to do is to create something like windows sorting. in windows, you can have different sorting for folder and subfolder. in each document library, we have some top-level folders I want this to be sorted based on A-Z then when you go inside there are either files or folders. if there are only files I want them to be sorted by date. If it again folders I want them to be sorted A-Z

is it possible? If yes how?

Currently, that is not possible to achieve in SharePoint Online. SharePoint does not provide the ability to apply different sorting methods based on content types or folder structures, but just columns.

I would propose that you share this idea via the SharePoint UserVoice forum: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration
