Indeed I was wrong with that assumption. I thought it could be true because one app after passing to it a protected location path of an xml file (/data/data/another.app/file.xml) the app showed xml parsing error (pretending it opened a file but couldn't parse it properly) instead of file opening error.

No, TC isn't allowed to access the folders of other apps. The only app folder it can access is its own.

Just create a button in the lower button bar with
Type: Go to directory
Command: /data/data/com.ghisler.android.TotalCommander

Make sure to get the upper-/lowercase spelling right.
