Is it possible to apply for the F-1 visa to the US from the UK? I have no UK citizenship, nor Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK. I plan to apply for the UK visitor visa first and re-apply for the F-1 visa to the US, as US embassies in my country are closed now.

The US does not restrict where you may apply for a nonimmigrant visa (such as a student visa) from. You may do so in any country you've legally entered, even if as a tourist.
You must schedule an appointment for your visa interview, generally, at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in the country where you live. You may schedule your interview at any U.S. Embassy or Consulate, but be aware that it may be difficult to qualify for a visa outside of your place of permanent residence.
