Store Old Indices in S3 and load when needed in future?

We would like to store lots of old indices in S3 for easy storage and the ability to import the indice from S3 back into Elasticsearch when needed. I have installed the repository-s3 plugin, and I have seen how i can do snapshots, but can i actually just load individual files into S3 to store and then reimport them when needed? What options do i have here?

That sounds like what the snapshot/restore API is doing, no?

Snapshot and restore does this, as would Searchable snapshots | Elasticsearch Guide [8.8] | Elastic with the added benefit is you don't need to restore to be able to read it.
