The Plink tool wrapped for Galaxy could be installed and used in a local, docker or cloud Galaxy for most of the filtering.

First, filter per-chromosome/quality/maf with Plink. From there you can select how many SNPs from each per-chromosome filtered dataset to retain using the tool NGS: VCF Manipulation > VCFrandomSample or the tool Text Manipulation > Select random lines from a file (for the second, use a VCF without a header during line filtering, then add it back after if wanted). Merge the final results together using VCFcombine.

Hope this helps, Jen, Galaxy team
