I imagine many are families with these 2:1 modules from Aliexpress that do both battery charging (single cell lipo) + DC-DC converter booster to keep the output at a steady voltage.

Example here.

 

So long story short, I'm looking for something that would do the same but could handle multiple batteries and keep them balanced. If anyone knows about a similar module please let me know.

IIRC maxim has a couple of multi cell charger IC's

It has been a large number of years since I last looked at those, but could imagine linear, maxim fairchild having chips like this.

I do know they are out there as we had a serious debate about their use back then but ended up with just 1 cell so no need to do further investigation.

 

edit: edded:

 

Maxim seems to have 1 to 6 cell chgargers:

at Analog devicec (took over linear technologies)

there also seems to be a "cell balancing" section:
