First of all, I don't see how is this related to getting SYSTEM account access in NT 3.1. To answer your question, no, StickyKeys didn't appear until Windows 95 (and presumingly Windows NT 4.0 as well).

IIRC, there's a far easier way that involves simply setting your screensaver to cmd.exe. Because setting the screensaver does not require any administrative rights it's a nice privilege escalation exploit. Got fixed around NT4 or so, though.

Or use the SetHC.exe exploit.

The world would be a beautiful place if people checked their facts before recklessly posting. There is no sethc.exe in Windows NT 3.1.

Also this is not an exploit. Exploits are used to gain access to a computer. If you are able to swap system files around, then you kinda already have that access.

This borders on technomancy to my eyes. Thankfully, though, it doesn't work on modern versions of Windows, otherwise it would have serious potential to be abused.

Or much easier, use systemcmdtool.exe I found on my hard drive. It has a few versions, it works from NT 3.1 to Windows 10. I can't post a link because it is "suspicious". Go to Google and search for it.

You can also run cmd.exe as SYSTEM without softwares and the sethc.exe is one of them. To run apps as SYSTEM, you need at lease admin rights in Vista and later.

In modern versions of Windows, you are logged in as SYSTEM all the time. You account is just another layer on the SYSTEM account. If you log out and you will be only logged in with SYSTEM then you can start explorer.exe to see the SYSTEM account desktop and taskbar (although you can't open File Explorer).

I am not quite sure how did you end up with this conclusion, since this statement is horribly wrong. What you've said is that you always work in the corridor since you can leave the office and move your desk to the corridor.

The SYSTEM account is what you are logged in with before you log in using your account, all the critical tasks are still running under SYSTEM, LogonUI is an app that logs you on. It is internally logged on for Windows to work. If you log SYSTEM out, which means killing all the tasks under it, you will find it is impossible and if you kill a critical task, you will get a blue screen.
