yes, i know - the problem is that scummvm says it is Zak-FM - what is not right

It's impossible for ScummVM to reliably distinguish fan translated versions of Indy3TOWNS and ZakTOWNS. Hence, it offers all posssible variants. And that's exactly the case for me: If I point ScummVM at a fan translated version of Indy3TOWNS, it offers me in fact four choices: Zak TOWNS, Indy3 VGA, Indy3 TOWNS, and Loom TOWNS. Pick one.

Maybe you used the mass detector, which currently always picks the "first" choice when it can't decide for sure which version is correct and which not.
