Trigger approval flow for file in library and update person column

Since there is currently no "For selected file" trigger (only for an item), is there a workaround?

Here is my flow:

Is there an expression to get the ID once a file is selected after triggering?

 

Also, is there a way to update a person column? I'd like to add a person who approves a file to a person column - this would be very helpful (there can be multiple approvers).

Thanks.

Actually it looks like it's possible to use the "For selected item" trigger to run an approval for a particular file:
