Is it correct understood that systemd will control the processes inside a container? If, are there plains to make a monitor system, so Nagios won't be needed?

Are there plans to making changes to config files without Puppet?

Systemd does not replace nagios. Nagios can check for network connectivity, can understand protocol and several others things. Systemd can monitor processes, but it can either check the process is running and restart it, without notification, or it can check the process is alive, but this requires to patch the code of the software, which is not done for most software.

And nagios also provides a way to send alerts, to handle alert escalations, etc, which is outside of the scope of Systemd.

Regarding Puppet and config files, yes, you can use what you want to modify them. It is just easier to use a tool like Puppet if you manage a big set of servers, but others tools would work equally well.
