@frogger14033, could please provide a source for the statement, that Google wants only lowercase letters?

We all know Google is not very open on SEO tips. So beside the web best practises use this site:

About the underscore problem (remember: there shouldn't be underscores in an URL) in your URLs you even can find a note by Google:

The link you posted regarding capitalization only advises you to be consistent. Actually I see a danger in changing this now as it will severely harm the score of currently indexed pages.
The author states that page rank splits will happen if you have both pgNr and pgnr in an URL. And of course that you should in general avoid URL parameters which would in turn mean that we should better change to something like https://myshop.de/category/1 instead of https://myshop.de/category/?pgNr=1
On the other hand I read a lot of times (from Google) that we should just be consistent and trust in the ability of the Google Crawler to interpret this correctly. I will discuss this with our SEO agency
