I want to rename many folders.

The new names shall have:
1) parts of the old name
2) runnig numbers
3) New names from a list, loaded into Advanced Renamer

Request 3) ist easy to manage for me. But I am not able to combine my 3 requests.

How can I combine my different requests?

Load your new names from a List first.
Then use a Script to retrieve the original folder names - as item.name.

If you are familiar with scripting then you can carry out the rest of your renaming using JavaScript.

Otherwise use the simple script:

return item.newName + "?" + item.name;

to append the original name to the name from the List - with a suitable separator character (I've used "?" here, since this can never appear in a Windows file/folder name).

You can then use normal methods to add-to and rearrange the folder name as required.
