Create this file /home/$USER/.inputrc with the following:

# ~/.inputrc - complements /etc/inputrc - global inputrc for libreadline
# April 15, 2019
# See readline(3readline) and `info rluserman' for more information.

$include /etc/inputrc

# Insert key to togged overwrite-mode
"\e[2~": overwrite-mode

# April 22, 2019 AU Q&A: https://askubuntu.com/q/1135306/307523
# Make Shift-tab act like "cd ../" (move to parent directory)
"\e[Z": "cd ../"

Save the file and open a new terminal.

Now you can use Shift+Tab to send cd ../ to the terminal.

Also included in the settings you can press Insert key to toggle between character overwrite (replace) mode and insert mode.
