Which apps do you for transfer files between computer and Android phone wirelessly? I am not looking for drive apps because they still require download after uploading from the sender device.

No need of apps, Most of the phones now have a in-built FTP sharing option in file manager, Use it and enter the ip in file manager, and you can access everything

Found an option in MIUI file manager. Able to view files in computer but how to transfer files from computer to device?

Why does android still not something like airdrop built in. I wish Microsoft collaborated with Google to bring this :/

It has nearby share, and mostly now on every deice, but fun fact, never worked for me (tried 6-7times with different phones and with different files).

There is no need to install any app to just transfer files to your PC from android smartphone or other way around. Your PC has storage, just give access to your phone for same storage. ShareIt like apps probably do lot of data transfer to their own server in background, my suggestion is to avoid these.

Sloth is actually right, you can use any file manager to browse contents of your shared hard drives wirelessly.
Just right click on drive, select properties -> sharing -> advanced sharing, tick the box and close it.
On phone, on a good file manager application, select SMB share, select your PC, enter your username and password and optionally save it.
There you go, you got full HDD access on phone.
