I can get the roach to hit all three switches, but I can never get the fluff to kill it before it reaches the big pressure plate.

I need help with this one. Here is my assumption:

But I am not able to perform these steps and at the same time also create a free fluff that kills the brain (without chasing me). It seems like I have to execute each step flawlessly and I am very bad at this.
Are there any move patterns which work great in here? And on which timer numbers should I start to execute the patterns?

Your assumptions are wrong. This isn't an efficiency room, though it's disguised as one.

Oh, thank you! Now I had all the time that I needed and the room was super-easy. :D

No. Sorry. But this just doesn't make any sense. To make this possible you need to have the rear of the puffs in position and stunned on turn 4 so that it does not move toward you at the same moment that its fellow moves toward the roach. But there doesn't appear to be any sequence of moves that leaves puff 1 in the correct position and allows the cutting of puff 2 in a way that enables it to be moved into position on turn 3 leaving it stunned on turn 4 with Beethro in position to push it to the appropriate square on turn 5. You claim it's not about efficiency but that appears to be exactly what it's about!

There really isn't efficiency... you should be spending a lot of time waiting.

When I said it's not "an efficiency room", I just meant that it doesn't require macro-efficiency; that is, there isn't a timer for solving the room as a whole. The puzzle does require micro-efficiency, reforming fluff before the roach touches the pressure plate.

I had another look just now, and it can be made easier:

I wouldn't even say it requites micro.

OK, I got there in the end though how to achieve nuntar's original suggestion remains a mystery to me. Have I mentioned how much I hate fluff at all?!

You can blame me. The final way it works is not my idea but the original concept was mine and it was me who pushed to have it because, well, fulfilling childhood dreams and stuff.

I still think Fluff is one of the best elements in DROD.
