How to ctrl+d in reverse, from down to up?

When you select one (or a few) line and duplicate that, then you have 2 copies of the line that are next to each other.
You can choose to consider either copy as the "copied" version.

Sublime is just a text editor, not an IDE, like IntelliJ products - so to put simply it doesn't come with code formatting out of the box. But you can install a package that can do that for a specific language. See formatting packages on Package Control.
