The scenario is that some OSM objects are fetched via overpass. I'd like to provide a link to directly edit that object in case something is missing/wrong. The object's tag could be "amenity", "office", "shop" etc. iD editor doesn't seem support this feature.

I don't know where or if the feature is documented but OSM Inspector appears to successfully link to specific elements within iD. Once an element is selected in the map pane the link appears as an icon (iD edit icon) on the right sidebar.

If your goal is to create a standalone, feature specific editor MapComplete might provide a suitable starting point.

Indeed there is a working link in OSM Inspector! Thanks

To edit that object, url is
https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit?editor=id&node=node id
https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit?editor=id&way=way id
https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit?editor=id&relation=relation id

Of course, this applies to whatever object. "amenity", "office", "shop" filter should be done upstream.

For edits that don't require visual feedback, I'd suggest Level0 editor.
