hello!

as most monitors nowadays, my monitor is very wide

this maybe good for movies and games, but my main usage is text reading and web browsing, which should be better to have long vertical dimension and short horizontal (so that eyes wont get tired moving from one edge to the other)

is there a way that can split my screen vertically and display each window to each area?

placing my screen in portrait mode, makes it ridiculously elongated

thanks!

Manage windows via

Gridmove
or
MoveIt - windows management app - Mini-Review

(I use both myself)

yes! but automatically

both of my suggestions are "manual".
They're both very quick though, as they use keyboard shortcuts.
Once you've used them a bit, the various windows should (I think) remember their positions.
You might also need an AHK script to quickly change from maximised to "normal" windows.

With Skrommel's Winwarden you can set up a rule for each application, e.g. to position/move its window. Then if you make Winwarden start with Windows, you're done!

Personally I've been using WinSplit Revolution for years. At alternativeto.net there are more options.

I just did a search for "automat" on that page, and got two hits: allSnap and AutoSizer. They are not exactly what you asked for, but maybe some of the other applications on that page match that need better.
