Anti-controller bs always makes me laugh so hard. There is no limiting factor here other than your imagination and design skills. You don't need to drag and drop anything, because there is nowhere in there that actually needs that functionality, even on the PC.

Have a button to give an item. It will be removed from one list, and added to the other if there is room. If you have multiple characters, use a button label for each. Simple. Quick. Refined.

Have a button to equip an item. Items can only go in one slot so there is no specification needed. You can't equip a helmet on your ass. You can't equip a shield on your head. The one special case is right hand or left hand. Use the trigger buttons to select. Simple. Quick. Refined.

Have a button to drop an item. Simple. Quick. Refined.

In a shop, the button to select an item will buy it, and the button to drop an item will sell it.

If you are dead set on dragging things around, a typical standard controller has 3 pointing devices (d-pad, 2 tumbsticks) instead of just the one with your mouse. Use the right stick as a cursor, and push it in for your click.
