I was interested in that functionality as well, so I developed my own version of it.
It can be found here and already is in nbbpm (can be installed from ACP by searching for nodebb-plugin-category-queue)
It has some basic ACP (list of categories with options to queue new topics from them or not queue), and only works on new topics, not all posts (that is actually by design, as - after all - you have done the work on filtering posts already. It's just that I was looking for only sending new topics to queue)
Offcanvas sidebar with categories?

I am planning on having several plugins coded by freelancers, Is there anything in the core, or otherwise, that would prevent me from removing the categories from the home page and placing them into an offcanvas sidebar?
Not really, NodeBB is pretty flexible with this. Your plugin could just expose a new route as "home page", and put all the categories in a sidebar in your theme.

Awesome. I chose Nodebb for flexibility; become the forum/CMS that I need. Nodebb never ceases to surpass expectations.
