Hello, and thank you for responding. The EU residency :
With the permanent EU residency permit, foreign nationals can move more freely within the European Union (EU). In many respects, it is comparable to the settlement permit and is a permanent residency title.

You are misinterpreting what this allows you to do. You can move freely around other parts of the EU as a tourist, i.e. without the need for any tourist visas that you'd require if you didn't have German residency. That's all it does. It will not allow you to move to another EU country without a job offer, same as in Switzerland.

You already have EU residency since you have permanent residency in Germany. You can visit, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, etc, etc, as a tourist for up to 3 months without having to apply for a tourist visa. It has no bearing on getting residency in another EU country. For that you/employer must meet whatever conditions said EU country requires.

No, not yet. Is this due to the Corona Virus crises or other reasons?
Virus. All permit applications are on hold for at least 3 months.
