Is it possible to get old Android Apps for Android 2.3 ( gingerbread )? I need the old VLC to play some .m3u InternetRadio Files and one of a Kodi Remote App, like Kore, Yatse. I was searching the Internet but I didnt found anything to get the old Apps.

If you go to a trusted source such as apkmirror, you can look for previous versions of apks. I believe that some of the apps you are mentioning weren't created at the time or made to support gingerbread.
You could try installing a lollipop or marshmallow custom rom to get access to most latest apps. Marshmallow is currently the minimum api, though lollipop still had great support up until recently

Android Gingerbread is from 2010, by doing some google searching I found out that:
-VLC's android app was first launched in 2014, so you won't be able to get that for gingerbread.
-Yatse was released in 2011, so a primitive build might be available, but it wouldn't be too useful.
-The XMBC Official remote app was launched before yatse, so a primitive build of that may also be available.

The point is, Android 2.3 is heavily outdated and long gone. If you mention your phone's model here then I can walk you through the process of installing a custom rom, and also find a suitable rom for you if you need any help in that category.

But I have used VLC and XMBC remote apps on my Mobile, with Android Gingerbread, 2 years ago. But I cant find the apps anymore.
Do you have an link for Anddroid Marshmallow or Lollipop? My mobile is a Samsung GT-S5300.

Android 4 is available with some googling, but has some bugs.

My bad regarding the vlc apk. It was released in 2014, but is compatible with android 2.1+, let me give you a link to the latest stable version for android 2.3:

Yatse and Kore are both android 4.0+

You could try this xmbc remote app apk:
