Currently it isn't possible to choose menu action for dialed number on the call history via long tap, which would open/copy the selected number to the dialer number pad for additional editing.

It is confusing as you ask two different things... edit contact or copy to phone's dialer? Editing things on the history itself sounds like something you do not need as you do not need to alter a history ever (apart of hiding single calls from your history maybe but that is deleting...). copy to phone's dialer sounds pretty neat to me, I had to type numbers several times till I got them right - correction of typos is a valid use case or adding a prefix/suffix to it. This should work with all numbers from the history and from the people app, please edit the whole question again to reflect copy to phone's dialer only - maybe you want to enhance this request to a global feature (call-history, people, browser, etc). edit contact otoh is something already there as you mention in your edit.

@chemist - Done as you you proposed - i.e removing the second part of the question and additional edit remark.

It is also now a wiki post to allow further improvement of the question by the members

and yes the intention of the question was really the typos and possible adding of the prefix/suffix as you mention. I have many stored number in local form so such possibility to edit dialed number would be quite nice feature.

I am missing this handy feature too. It is a basic feature of many (not only mobile) phones and as the data is already there, I guess it is easy to implement.

This feature is just must have IMO. There are number of reasons to copy number from call history to be later on pasted to SMS, email, web, app like directory service for lookup of caller identity. As requester also points out there are needs to change number before dialing e.g. by adding country code.
