When creating a label you can create a buffer of another color around your text. Is there any way to do so in the print composer?

Are you talking about the labeling tool in print composer?

On macOS selecting a font offers You a lot of options, e.g. to add shadow to the text. But at least in QGis 3 I'm unable to use that.

A simple way would be to use HTML with the CSS text-shadow in the labeling tool:

<p style="text-shadow:0px 0px 2px red;">Text with red glow around</p>
