If you can show you know your stuff in the experience section of your resume, you have a chance, but having the associate or professional certs will help you in your job search no matter what

Cloud practitioner is pretty useless unless you are going for a sales job

As you don’t have a lot of years behind you, you should get the architect certs.

I don’t have a really technical background have a degree in civil/ environmental engineering and Sustainable Business.

It seems like you're hesitant to take them based on the reputation of those certs. If you feel the value of those certs are questionable as it applies to your role, but I would add that it won't hurt your chances at all. Cloud has become ubiquitous in the way orgs have started to operate, so a working knowledge could lead a path forward.

I have a few certifications now but they don’t seem to add that much value to my professional profile it would seem. Just try to fish the water a bit to see if these will add more value while expanding opportunities to grow in a more technical space or will my current work experience being so functional instead of technical be a deterrent for hiring managers.

My alternatives so far are being a junior SRE for a big insurance company or system engineer at a big retail company. Then I could make a lateral move from there.
