You know, one arm push up, one arm pull up, pistol squat,... do you think they will make actually strong or should you just stick to the basic and add weight to it?

If you have access to weights use them.

Basic straight sets, basic exercises, basic program.

Keep it simple.

Who told you that "one arm-" are not basics?
Who told you that extra weight is needed for strength? Your bodyweight is enough, baby.

If you can do one arm pullups you already know how to train yourself and should keep doing what has been working.

People who do calisthenics are only good at moving their body weight, but are terrible at moving anything heavier than that. Can someone who can do 10 one arm push up able to do 10 reps with a 100 lbs bag on his back?

Strength is task specific: if you want to get good at the clean and jerk, you have to do the clean and jerk, if you want to get good at doing pushups with a bag on your back (for whatever reason) you have to do that.

Start with body-weight exercises. After that put some weight and do basic exercises.
