Since I know now what a Visual Novel is I have now other questions! Hopefully someone can answer me those!?
How many Visual Novels are out there? And how many has gotten into an Anime already? (like Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan - Love this Show! AMAZING!)! Are there othe VN from Idea Factory which are an Anime?
And are those/these VN only available in Japan or in Germany as well?
And on which consols can I play those Visual Novels?
PLEASE I would appreciate any helpful answers! ^__^

Most of VN that I know is playable in PC (but some can be play in console like PS2 or PSP)
there's so many of VN that gotten into anime like Clannad, Umineko no naku koro ni , Higurashi no naku koro ni, Fate Stay Night, Shingetsutan Tsukihime and many more
but for Idea Factory, I only know Hakuoki one that gotten into anime
I dunno they are getting release outside Japan

Look here.
http://vndb.org/
Its a Database for Visual Novels. They also List the Language in which the Visual Novel is available.
There are a few fantranslations for Visual Novels. You can find most of the Translation Patches here.

The only one I know which was released outside Japan is Ever 17.

well there's this School Days visual novel. It's an H-game and also has an anime. I like School Days, and I'm currently playing the game because of the bad endings. There's also ef - A Tale of Memories visual novel. The anime is great too [the two versions]. I haven't played it yet but soon maybe I'll buy the game and play.

do not confuse visual novel with light novel;
visual novel is an interactive game with graphics

light novel, on the other hand, is a novella in US term.

shakugan no shana, toradora, spice and wolf are some of the examples
