Is it also possible to show the lens manufacturer in the photo data?

unfortunately no, only in the Adobe Lightroom lens profile.
Can you manually insert the manufacturer in the photo data?

There are some EXIF editing tools out there, but I'd advise against it. You'd be better off choosing an available, but unused, metadata field, like something in the IPTC or xmp, and posting that info in that field. That's all outside the realm of jAlbum, however - jAlbum isn't the tool for doing things like that.

Getting it properly labeled in Turtle, however, would be quite a challenge. I don't think the skin gives you that much flexibility.

If you're using an XPM field like "xmp.cameraManufacturer" the skin will try to guess the name, e.g.: "Camera Manufacturer:", and will use this as label.

Is this field synonymous for the lens XPM field?

We don't know what the metadata field is called - Laza was just providing a hypothetical example. The field could have any one of a thousand different names.

If you have an image that has the lens manufacturer recorded in the file metadata, add it to a jAlbum project. Right-click the thumbnail and choose List metadata. That will show you all of the fields that jAlbum can extract from that image file. If you see the lens manufacturer listed there, write down the name of the metadata field. You can then tell the skin to display that field in the photo info.

xmp.crs:LensProfileFilename

Dies ist das gew├╝nschte Feld. Wie und wo muss ich das einf├╝gen, damit es angezeigt wird?

See screenshot.

But you can put it anywhere in the sequence. This example shows it between camera|Model and lens|Lens|Xmp.Lens-Information|Canon Makernote.Unknown tag (0x0095)

Commas between metadata fields, pipes to show "or," like "camera or Model."
