1. Simple notes with keywords and endless time to life
I have notes (most of them as post-its on the wall and monitor in my office) with information's I am not able or willing to remember. But I need this information's every few days. e.g. numbers for bank-account, projects, persons I find this information's by place (post-it glued to a specific place in my office). When they are digitized I would use keywords or in-text search. e.g. searching for the project name "my project" to find its number.

Yes, Org can definitely do this, though in this particular case, I'm not sure Org really has any advantage over using just plain text files or say markdown files. (The advantage of Org would be in the integration that would be possible with other parts of your setup.)

I personally have something similar: a bunch of files in which I keep notes of things I may need in the future. I keep them in Org format and I search them with Deft: <https://jblevins.org/projects/deft/>. (Though I do not follow the advice on that page of using Melpa Stable. I just use the Melpa version.) Of course, searching them can also be done with grep (or one of its alternatives, ripgrep, ag, etc.) and an Emacs frontend (ivy, helm, what have you).

2.ToDo List without time information's

Yes, you can create todo-lists without time information. You can attach a deadline to a task, but you don't have to. You can also create multiple TODO-states (e.g., TODO, INPROGRESS, SUSPENDED, DONE, etc.) and set different priorities.
