Can I use "much" to modify and emphasize "too many" or would I have to resort to different adverbs such as "way" or "far"?

He bought much too many/way too many/far too many apples.

"Much too many" certainly sounds bad to me but that doesn't necessarily mean that its wrong and it might just be that there are better options.

I am not a native person and I can only answer this question based on my Grammar book.

Here, authors explain that

" we use far (not much or many) before too+many + a plural countable noun or too much + an + uncountable noun"

I wish it helps.
