Does anybody know, if it is possible to register with a specific role and then to have different texts for different roles? E.g. if you register as "role1" you only have to declare username an emailaddress, if you register as "role2" you have to specify some more data. After that users with "role1" get a simple email, users with "role2" get an email with a more detailed text refering to the data specified during registration.

It's possible with an added module but not in the core Drupal installation. The User Registration Email module should get you all sorted out.

Thanks for your answer - currently we have someone developing a Drupal-System for us, which already allows diffent kinds of registration for different roles. A few weeks ago the system sent different e-mails for different roles with some default-texts. After we asked them to change the texts of the e-mails, they said, the text will be the same for every role - shortly after that, they changed the text and from then on there was the same text regardless of the role.

Unfortunately I don't know much about Drupal, so I can't figure out how they managed to do the role-specific registration - but it looks like that there is no module named "User Registration Email". Looks like we have to get along with the situation that the different texts for e-mails disappeared in some magical way.
