To my knowledge I believe modifiers can moved up one step in the list through executing this line
Is there anyway to move a modifier to the top of entire stack through python based on the modifier name or type ?

This can be done by some simple scripting. I assume obj is filled with the object with the modifier stack
def modifiers_by_name(obj, name): """ Find all modifiers with a specific name in obj """ return [x for x in obj.modifiers if x.name == name] def modifiers_by_type(obj, typename): """ Find all modifiers with a specific type in obj """ return [x for x in obj.modifiers if x.type == typename] # move all "Screw" modifiers to the top for modifier in reversed(modifiers_by_type(obj, "SCREW")): # while modifier not on top while obj.modifiers.find(modifier.name) != 0: # move it one more to the top. bpy.ops.object.modifier_move_up(modifier=modifier.name)
Note I reversed the modifiers so the top "Screw" modifier will still be on the top after execution
