comment Simulating a figure-environment
@ChristianHupfer I think I did understood it fine, since all I did now, was to copy the MWE from the link I provided (which I already mentioned in my second comment).

comment Simulating a figure-environment
@ChristianHupfer Well, the only way I know how to do that would be by manual distance adjustment for some specific pictures (via trial and error, i.e. playing sufficiently long with \hspace{xpt} and \vpspace{ypt} for some numbers x,yuntil it fits), which would be a waste of my time doing it and your time reading it. While I applaud your intentions, in this case they don't seem to be applicable.

comment Simulating a figure-environment
The accepted answer in the link I provided contains the code I put here as a MWE. Since my question is how to modify this MWE as described, I can't add a MWE that "illustrates my problem" (if I interpreted your request correctly).

comment Distributing two small images in a document (horizontally) evenly
Yes, though I accepted the other answer because it was slightly more detailed and also did without the subcaption package. Thank you nonetheless for your effort, I upvoted you.

comment Distributing two small images in a document (horizontally) evenly
Thanks for your detailed answers. One last question: Is the vertical gap that comes from the center precisely \medskip or is it a different value ?

comment Distributing two small images in a document (horizontally) evenly
I'm also confused by the \medskip \noindent \hfil% before the picture and the \medskip after it from your second code sample. Is this just a replacement for \begin{center} and \end{center} ?

What do you mean by "\includegraphics places images upon the text baseline" ? Why exactly is the space between the text above and below the picture the same if you raise it ?

comment Distributing two small images in a document (horizontally) evenly
The second example looks good. But two issues remain: 1) In the second example you provided, I think you first have to add \usepackage{caption} otherwise it throws an error. 2) How can I add text before the figure ? Placing text before \begin{figure} still moves it after the figure when compiled.
