A bunch of them.

Tourney RD-TX800 is an option.

Altus RD-M310 is another.

Acera RD-M360 is another still.

Yes, but it need to have the same n8umber of speeds (number of cogs at the back) generally there are higher versions of Tourney like Tourney TX, Tourney TZ etc etc, but improving these would give very very marginal difference and would make no impact on your performance.

Hope this helps

If you're willing to go overkill xtr m9120 derailleur
If you just want a little bit of improvement Alivio M3100
