Is it possible to determine element IDs in a specific range by element type or feature definition. Is it possible at all.

No, it's not possible and technically such requirement simply not makes sense. Element ID is implementation feature of DGN V8 format, managed by MicroStation engine, not by a user.

The discussion, linked by MaryB is the place where you should start, because different options and workarounds were discussed here.
Reinis Labans said:A note, this ID will be displayed in IFC under an Item Type attribute.
In such case, I do not see any reason element ID is involved in this process.
What is the best solution depends on workflow, requirements, data structure etc., but what Adam Wieczorek is for sure one from possible ways. I can imagine some more, like to create "element GUID" based on file name + element ID, stored in Item Type by a macro.
