have it managed to start a node remote via roslaunch, question is now: If i do that roscore is started automatically, but local on the machine i start the launchfile on. Is it possible to tell ROS to start the roscore not on that local machine, but on the remote computer instead?

No sorry...atm i just switched over to launch roscore on the machine i am starting the launchfiles on. Was the easiest way for me for the moment. Just had to change all declarations (ROS_IPs) in the environment-files of all machines that way.
