Is it possible to modify an field of an entry within the front-end? Something like this with an action URL: <a href="{{actionUrl('save/entry', {userfield:user.id}) }}">add user to userfield of current entry</a>

Sure... you'd just do it through whatever input tag you want using the name="fields[fieldHandle][]" syntax passing in the user's ID as the value.

There are examples of that here, under the "Relations" header:


You won't be able to do that should an anchor link GET request though... EntriesController::saveEntry() is explicitly checking for a POST request, so you'll want to do it though a proper form: https://craftcms.com/docs/templating/entry-form
