Webpack and Babel are products of a genius, but what would be absolutely gold is if we wouldn't need them anymore.

Good news, they aren't needed anymore! Use Rollup and ESBuild and reduce your carbon footprint :)

Haha, heard about those, instant Webpack lite without the hassle ... but do we need to use ESBuild and Rollup? I understood that ESBuild is the speed king, can we dispense with Rollup?

esbuild compiles typescript and bundles javascript. You need rollup if you want to bundle anything else.
