Is it possible to install PTV Visum including Python with a Silent-Installation?

Yes, with PTV Visum 202 that is possible. Refer to the Installation Manual in:

or
c:\Program Files\PTV Vision\PTV Visum 2020\Doc\Eng\Installation_Visum2020.pdf
Ch. 5.

For PTV Visum 18 and earlier release versions:
Unfortunately, Python can not be installed in the background because the setups for Python are not 'silent' and are not created by PTV.
Although you can use a manual setup to create a Setup.inf file to prepare for a silent installation, if Python components are mentioned in the Setup.inf file, they will be ignored.
If you want to install PTV Visum via a package, you always have to install Python manually.

If you want to install Service packs for PTV Visum later it is possible to package them, even if they exchange any Python components of the Python installation or inside the Visum installation folder.
