Is it possible to convert Chrome Extension to Electron-like?

By Chrome Extension, I mean exactly any kind of Web Extension API.

Its own window, double-click-able from the desktop.

I am saying that, we might not need Electron, nor webview/webview for many cases. Chrome Extension, with sufficient privileges might already be enough.

Possible! But it's more like reverse engineering because javascript isnt only the stack extensions are developed. We use even golang for that

What do you mean by using even Golang?
