it would be better to adopt animals in need rather than create new animals.

The other day I had a conversation with someone who also rejects breeding but said that (female) dogs should give birth at least once in their life (because they read, it would lower uterus cancer risk). Almost as if people (even after a pandemic) still did not understand exponential growth.
If the desired community on a remote instance is not already available on your home server, then you have to paste the URL (e.g. https://lemmy.helvetet.eu/c/sverige) to the search field. Your server will then fetch the community and it should appear after a couple of seconds!
I think it is automatic. It starts crawling other instances starting from lemmy.ml, so it should appear soon, since your instance is listed under their lemmy.ml/instances. I don’t know the periodicity of crawls though.
You could also use approve-first method for registration if you still want to be open for new users. This brought down spam to nearly zero on feddit.de
Here they list them:

According to their Github it should be possible.
Oh yeah totally forgot about that. It is actually pretty cool that I can share my totally legally obtained e-books from my account at example.org with firstname.lastname@example.org without a public link :D
It really comes down to what kind of social media you are looking for. Pleroma and Mastodon are people focused (i.e. you follow people, not topics), while Lemmy focuses on communities/topics. Kbin is somewhere in between, you can both create post on an individual timeline and in communities, but Kbin is still relatively new.
Personally, I like Lemmy most (though Kbin might become interesting in the future). The great thing about the fediverse is that you can post with your account anywhere (with some limitation between different services) so it does not matter if you are on lemmy.ml or feddit.de or beehaw.org.
You are right! But there is a plugin for Nextcloud that allows to create and view posts like in Mastodon. (it is very underwhelming though)
You can post and comment with your account on any post or community on any server as long as the servers are federating. For example I have my account on feddit.de but I am now commenting here on lemmy.ml.
Usually you can just search for a community in the search bar and then create posts there or browse their posts and comment.
For new communities on different instances, they have to be “discovered” first by pasting the URL to the search field. For example if you want your server to list the hamburg community from feddit.de you copy https://feddit.de/c/hamburg and then paste it to the search bar. Then it is accessable to all users of your server.
I hope that helps a bit understanding how it works. If something is not clear just ask ^^
Hoffentlich bedeutet das nicht, dass Leute die noch keine Berührung mit dem Fediverse hatten draußen bleiben.
