I have captured a .pcapng-file (protocol of the packets is UDP) with wireshark. Now, I want to replay it (so that it seems that the packets were sent just now and I will be able to receive them with a ros node) - how do I do that? I am rather new to wireshark and have already searched a bit, but didn't found a case concerning a .pcapng-file.

Wireshark is passive, as in it does not provide replay functionality. Go have a look at the traffic generator section of the wiki for some tools that do that. Maybe you need to convert to pcap before you can use them though.
