    is it possible to create a custom sidebar with different content to categories?
    When yes, how can I add a custom playerlist to the sidebar like "Staff Online Now"?

    You'd need a resource for this, I believe.

    If I edit the forum_view then is the content globaI and not only in one category or not?

    Is there a finished addon?

    No, it isn't the global template. There are several widget frameworks in the resources.

    Forum_view is not the categorie_view... and if I edit the forum or categorie_view then is in all categories this sidebar and not only in categorie Alpha.

    On categorie Alpha should the users Alex and Bernd on the sidebar displayed.
    On categorie Delta the users Tom and Kira.

    If you use xfrocks widget framework you do not have to edit templates at all, much simpler and safer

    Use conditionals. See @Brogan's resource.

    Ok, now I have the example text at the bottom of the category how do I get it in the sidebar and display a custom list of players?

    You will either need an addon to fetch the data or you can hard code them.
