How important is the wall thickness in the case of plain bearings made of plastic? Can I increase the wall thickness in order to improve stability?

In actual fact, what is understood as load capacity mainly depends on the relation of the load-bearing surface to the load to be borne. A plain bearing with a large load-bearing surface can therefore carry more load than one with a small such surface. This means that the inner diameter – namely the shaft diameter – and the length of the bearing determine what the load capacity is and not the thickness of the wall.
