Nice to meet you, *****!
Thank you for the provided details.
Yes, you can!
How do you search iCloud by date:

Searching by date
Tap the Search tab in Photos and then begin entering a date in the search box.
Is everything clear with the provided instruction, *****?

On your Windows computer, open File Explorer, then click iCloud Photos in the Navigation pane. If you don't see iCloud Photos, click Pictures in the Navigation pane, then double-click iCloud Photos. Double-click a thumbnail to download and view it.

Is everything clear with the provided instruction?

If you have downloaded files from your iCloud account to a device like a PC or a laptop - you can delete them on the device and still have them on your iCloud
If you delete files directly from iCloud - then the files will be inaccessible

So, to go back to my original question. I will be unable to sort by photos and videos in date order or able to pick a date, i will just have to search manually?

It can sort files automatically but if you want something specific - you have to do it manually by typing the date into a search bar
