Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I can not find any parking area in the area-selector. And if I select an existing parkingarea, I can change it, but I can't change it back to parking area, is this areatype gone?

Are you asking about the editor "iD"?

There is no key "parkingarea" as far as I know. Use amenity=parking for either a node or a closed way to define a parking area. If the imagery is poor, a single node will suffice. If you can see the area well, trace it out and apply the tag amenity=parking to the way. See here for more.

In addition to that, consider using parking=surface (for ground-level parking lots) or parking=multistory (for a parking garage).

Also, fee=yes/no, capacity=??, and other tags can be useful.

Well, all nice, but apparently Larander uses the iD editor and maybe never saw/used tags. The question seems not to be about tags or keys but about a (perceived) confusing editor behaviour.
