I am fairly new to this and have a question as I always get distortions as soon as I try to extrude any verts of this cylindrical shaped part of the mesh or when I try to connect Verts of this part with other verts from parts of the rest of the model.

The Subdivision Surface Modifyer is causing the distortions. As soon as I switch it off, it's gone. I applied All, flipped the normals (and flipped them back afterwards as it had no effect), Merged by Distance, tried adding a crease around the edge loop, added additional edge loops etc.

Has anyone any idea what is causing these troubles?

I added all the faces around the Edge Loop at the back and the distortions on the outside of the cylinder are finally gone indeed, but there is a white ring clearly visible now inside the cylinder.

enter image description here Is there any chance to get rid of this? Not quite sure, what is causing this.

It's the expected behaviour: by extruding that vertex you're creating a "non-manifold" geometry. Check this answer for understanding what is manifold and why you should avoid non-manifold geometry.
