as far as I'm aware, this is not possible.

The challenge is in dealing with the different databases - there would
need to be some sort of query layer which was able to interrogate
whatever mechanism the database uses as its data dictionary to find
names of schemas, tables, views, functions, indexes and then columns in
those tables, view, indexes etc. Oviously, it can be done as this is
what tools like dbeaver,  pgAdmin, sqlDeveloper etc all do.
