I know that I can click and drag at monitors to kind of disable modifiers in Blender, but it's not working in heavy objects with ton of modifiers. Is there any addon to do that? Or any workaround?

I heard of the Display Tools addon, but unfortunately I didn't find it for Blender 2.93.

There's a built-in add-on called Modifier Tools.

With it, you get this little dialog:

A script.

As answered by @michaelh Please accept that answer if using modifier tools addon answers your question

There is an existing addon modifier tools to multi set all modifiers in the stack of the context object.

For multiple objects.

Misread question, as to setting all modifiers on multiple objects.

Iterate over selected objects and set show in render and viewport to True if option = 'ENABLE', false with 'DISABLE' or toggle value.

import bpy
from bpy import context

option = 'TOGGLE' # in 'ENABLE', 'DISABLE', 'TOGGLE'

for ob in context.selected_objects:
    for mod in getattr(ob, "modifiers", []):
        if option == 'TOGGLE':
            mod.show_viewport = not mod.show_viewport
            mod.show_viewport = option == 'ENABLE'
        # optional
        #mod.show_render = mod.show_viewport # keep same

Note will disable for any option not in 'ENABLE', 'TOGGLE'
