I installed a package which requires readline and giving me the file not found error on libreadline.so. I tried to find it in the feed directory and in the ZSI without any success.
Which package is readline part of?

Readline, or libreadline I'm afraid.
Which ROM are you using? Even the Sharp ROM had a version of readline on it iirc. Are you sure it was complaining about readline.so rather than readline.so.x?
If it wanted the former, then make sure that the file exists (make a sumlink from readline.so.x to readline.so so it can be found).
Readline is available from OZ; it was in some packages in killefiz; and you can probably obtain a version from the old familiar feeds which will be in tar.gz format (ipkgfind.handhelds.org).

It complains about libreadline.so.4. I did a find / -name libreadline* and it returned nothing.
I am using the Sharp ROM coming with the Z6K.
However, I installed/deinstalled many packages, is it possible it scrapped something on my Z? If yes, how can I check and restore everything?

Oh, it probably doesn't exist then.
Try downloading the OZ package and running 'ar -x' on it to extract the contents.

I managed to have it installed. I was having a problem with ipkg. I then ran into another missing lib problem (libgcc_s.so.1). I am giving up for now since I don't have enough space to install gcc...

libgcc_s is rather small and is just a support lib for apps compiled with GCC 3.xx (afaik).
It should also be in the OZ feed.

Thanks lardman for your help, but after installing libgcc_s.so, I now need libc6.so and I think it's pretty clear my current ROM doesn't satisfy the requirements. I found it a little bit frustrating to have no clue at all when visiting the ZSI site about which package run on which ROM and/or Z model.Anyway, I plan to switch to OZ as soon as it runs satisfactory on the Z6K.

If you can find a kind soul with an OZ3.2 or OZ3.3.5 feed/ROM/ROM image, you could just copy/extract libreadline from there (with installing from ipk in the feed the preferable option).
I only say those ROMs, as all the others use libc2.3 which your Z won't like.
