I have tried swbuff-y but pressing C-tab only once just brings up the
buffer-switcher and don't switch to last viewed buffer.

Customize swbuff-delay-switch to change that.

Also, when I
cycle to a another buffer name in the list I need to press RET to
actually switch to it. The preferred way would be to switch to the
currently highlighted buffer when I release the Ctrl key. Like Alt-Tab
works in windows.

Unfortunately you can not make it act precisely like that in Emacs. However you can press for example Tab to do the switching. This is a bit more convenient then pressing RET.

You can also press n for "new frame" or w for "other window".

But there is a hugh amount of ways to do buffer switching. I looked once at Icicle for that, but really have not had the chance to try it out yet.
