Re: Is it possible to logg in through FTP to a server without having to upload any key file?

No. sshd authorizes a key for login based on its presence in
~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the server, and you have the public key to begin
with, so you have to get it there. I can imagine an sftp client that
would have the key-generation and upload process completely automated, but
I don't know of any that do. Tectia does part of it, having a button you
can press to upload a public key and authorize it (according to Tectia
conventions, of course).
