I am trying to do a python based workaround of the issue that there is no load next file in folder option in vlc. Is there a way to enqueue files to an already running instance of vlc media player from the command line?

Yes, use the --playlist-enqueue switch to add an item to the playlist instead of starting to play it right away:

vlc --playlist-enqueue c:\mp3s\foobar.mp3
