I bought the gopro hero 7 black. The stabilization is super, but what happens with the night- low light video guys ??? Have you see it? It’s horrible!!! A lot of noise. I tryed everything. Auto settings, protune settings. Low Iso, max Iso and more. But nothing… The video stay awful.

A shutter of 1/24 is waaay too slow. As mentioned in the post above, doubling the frame rate is the standard rule for "cinemtaic" look. For the best use of stabilization, you need a shutter 3X the frame rate.
Since you are shooting at night without much variance in light, choose the ISO that works best for your shutter and scene and set the MIN and MAX to the same value.
You didn't mention resolution, but obviously a higher resolution will generally look better. If I'm going to use the GoPro for night shooting, I generally use 4K (4:3)/24fps and then drop it in a 1080p 16:9 sequence. I set my WB manually, but if you are good at color grading, Native should be fine. A low sharpness also tends to give better results.
This video was shot 4K (4:3)/24fps with shutter Auto, EV 0, ISO MIN 800 MAX 800, WB (I think it was 5500K) manually set, Sharpness Low, Color Flat. In the beginning I over did the lumenence and bright the shadows and blacks up too high (it's a family video so I was more concerned in seeing my kid's faces than worrying about noise/grain). Overall though, I think the HERO7 Black did pretty good.
