But there are plugins for vim as well.
Eg. for filenavigation (with a tree is nerdtree) but netrw (:Explorer) has as well a tree view ( cycling with i between the views)

For fuzzy search over files vim-fzf, i think it handles the open buffers as well, but if not - there is defnitly a plugin for it somewhere....

Yeah there are a lot of plugins.

I'm having some trouble installing plugins, especially because I'm using neovim which is a bit different.

vim-plug should be roughly the same on neovim and vim. Been using it for several years, can recommend.

Hmm, but I'm having trouble installing it on my outdated machine

Fixed it now, used vim-plug instead of vundle
