One of the issues obviously is that the RME card don't become hw:0 all
the times.

This reminds me at the old times when I used the excellent 64 Studio:

"I have multiple audio interfaces. How can I make sure they are given
consistent device numbers by ALSA?

As root, add lines like these to the end of
your /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base file:

alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1

options snd-emu10k1 index=0

alias snd-card-1 snd-rme9652

options snd-rme9652 index=1

alias snd-card-2 snd-usb-audio

options snd-usb-audio index=2

In this example, a Creative Labs Audigy is set to card 0 for normal file
playback, an RME Hammerfall is card 1 for jackd, and a USB midi
connector is card 2."

I don't had/have to do that for some other up to date installs. I
experienced this as obsolet. No big deal, but that isn't the cause that
I can play one Youtube song and when trying to play another song, I
first need to reboot.
