I'm searching for an option (App, Mod, deleting a file with Root Explorer, ...) to sort the apps in Touchwiz Application Drawer in grid view alphabetically.

just go to settings / Applications / manage installed applications (or something like this), set applications filter to "show all" and wipe application data of samsung "Home" application.. btw, doing so you'll lose all your home screen settings (widgets, shortcuts..)

I already know that, i should have mentioned that i don't want to loose my home screen settings.
I like my apps sorted alphabetically in the app launcher, but i don't want to reset my home screen settings each time i install / deinstall one or more apps.

Is there something to manage your app icon locations on your pc like with the iPhone? I can just drag and drop and create menu's via iTunes.

The app order ist saved in /dbdata/databases/com.sec.android.app.twlauncher/launcher.db. If you delete the file and restart the phone (i think restarting the TW UI should also be enough) the apps are sorted alphabetically but unfortunatelly it also deletes the Homescreen settings.
So it would be necessary to sort the entries in the database file, which i can't do
