Alright, I finally got the drivers properly installed (also to work in Download Mode) and found proper Bootloader/PDA/CSC files (i9023EUR) for Odin and managed to do the flash update (however Odin I used is called I9003_Odin3 v1.82, don't know if that is a problem).
Then I should do a factory wipe, which works (Bootloader -> Recovery -> Wipe), but if I explore the phone I can see that all data is still present (all images, music, etc). So the hard drive still seems fixed.

I found out that I did not post my last update. I managed to flash with Odin, and I can get into the Bootloader menu to wipe the phone's data. I can, in Recovery Mode, also see the hard drive and it seems to be empty. That is, the phone fails to see it.
When I reboot out of Recovery Mode the phone gets stuck at the Google logo and that's it..

Ok, I will send the phone to be repaired. The phone is now unrooted and does not go further than the Google load screen.

Do you have fastboot? If not then download below.

Extract contents to desktop. Open up a command prompt:

cd Desktop/platform-tools

Put phone in bootloader mode. In command prompt type:

fastboot oem unlock (only if your bootloader is still locked). If its unlocked then download this

Put in the platform-tools folder you extracted earlier. Then type in command prompt:

fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-

Sometimes the flash might say 'fail' if that is the case then just boot the recovery image by typing:

fastboot boot recovery-clockwork-

Now boot into recovery and flash either a stock rom, stock rooted rom, or whatever your desire is.

This should work. If not, then there has to be a hardware issue with phone and go ahead and send it in for warranty. Let me know if this helps.

Flashing Clockwork did work, but if I understand correctly I have to copy the stock rom to the phone and load it in Recovery Mode? When I connect the phone to my PC it is recognized as an Android Phone (and even as a Nexus S) but the drive it shows up as seems to be recognized as empty ("Please insert a disk into Removable Disk (E.").
So what do I do?

What is sort of promising is that it indeed was capable to flash Clockwork. So the memory is not completely stuck. However, when I do a format, still nothing happens (phone isn't formatted).

Update: I am able to mount the phone to USB and I can access the phone via Windows. However, I can still not format the SD Card (which is of course internal) or put files (stock rom) on it. Are there other tricks to flash a stock rom? If not, it does indeed seem to be that I cannot flash a custom/stock rom because the drive of the Nexus is frozen/broken/whatever.
