How do I chose the abilities of my crew members?

so when I press "H" and configure my ship I can chose from different crew members, which then should bring different passive and active skills with them.

However even when I select a certain crewmember, the active ability is not in my hotbar during space combat.

AM I missing something?

You need to make sure you have a companion in the co-pilot slot, it is the only slot that give you active abilities.

Only the Co-pilots Active ability will be in your ability bar.

If you read the Developer Blog about crew members, it states:

Support Crew are broken up into four positions: Offensive, Defensive, Engineering, and Tactical, each representing the ship's systems that your Crew Members are assigned to work on while your ship is not in battle.

Your Copilot is chosen from out of your currently assigned Support Crew and in addition to their passive bonuses, also confer a single active ability that can be used during battle.

Only the copilot flies with you: the rest fix your ship in the Hanger.

You apoint 1 crewmember for each station, and then one of them also gets to be copilot. Only the copilot brings his skill, the other skills you get are determined by loadout.
