Can we redirect in bulk (using wildcard)
domains in this way (preferably at registrar level):

domain.tld
would redirect to:
https://dan.com/buy-domain/domain.tld

Parking at Dan doesn't work.
It is like inviting some people to your place
but locking the door, and not allowing anyone in.
And selling false hope of selling your domains to endusers.

......................................

you can skip this part:
(*This is not about Dan. This is about registrar services/alternatives.
I could pay someone to build a system/site for this purpose but
I prefer the simplest, easiest, safest solution.

My domains (and some other people's domains) don't resolve
fast enough (takes 20+ seconds) at least on my IP (and some other IPs),
and Dan traffic and offers are down significantly.
Dan is either committing suicide, or part of a dirty business.
Anyway their behavior is not acceptable in this matter.
But many other things are great at Dan.

I considered switching to Epik, but Epik has lots of problems as well
(small or big). It works, but could work better..
So giving another chance to Dan (at least until Epik improves itself/
or for nonEpik domains). *) end of skip

There are a number of approaches. If you have Apache or CPanel it's easier to do in bulk, there are also other options which are just a couple minutes on an individual level. You don't have to be a programmer for any of it, but it does depend on registrar, server type, access levels, and other fun stuff.

Here are some things to investigate:

A 301 redirect means that the page has permanently moved to a new location. A 302 redirect means that the move is only temporary. (Where do you want Google to look for it next time?)
 
Run your own DNS + webserver and redirect all you want.

Or... Run your own webserver, point all your domains there through your registrars DNS and forward at will.

The first setup is the simplest/safest solution and rather affordable with a minimal number(3) of servers.

Agree. In general, don't need 3 servers, one is enough, DNS and Web can use the same server.

I would never advice people to use just one server as that's setting yourself up for failure.

Technically that would work (but not working with all registrars) but when your business depends on it it's a huge no go.

3 servers is the bare minimal.
