By reading several HowTos on the internet how to add the capability to my RB0W to act as Acess Point also, I failed several times and it throws me back to UART-connections. Unfortunately not every tuto...

Doesn't the "full" Raspbian image include LibreOffice pre-installed?

Yes indeed Raspbian Stretch with RPD includes Libre Office.

Maybe the OP is not using Raspbian Stretch ??

I wonder if there is a HAT for the Raspberry Pi 3 with two or three ethernet ports so the RP can also function as an ethernet switch.

Likely not as the GPIO I/O is not fast enough to obtain usable I/O speed..

You don't have a TV either, or know someone who has one you can use for 10 minutes? You would make things easier for yourself if you temporarily connect the Pi to a display so you can verify it is booting. If your router is not showing an IP assigned to a Pi there's a good chance the Pi is either n...
