I know “I’m having trouble logging in to my account.” is correct. But is “I’m having trouble to log in” correct?
Are there some rules in using "trouble to"? I could not find sentences using “I’m having trouble to...” but I have found “not trouble to do something” like:
Nina need not trouble to come down, everything had been arranged.
Do not trouble to don your hat and gloves, Nina.
My friends never troubled to ask me what I would like.
Nina didn’t trouble to hide his disgust.
Please help me.

Apples and oranges: Notice how "bother" or "bothered" could be substituted for trouble/troubled in the four examples you've given.
"...having trouble to..." is altogether different, syntactically. Stick with "...having trouble logging in..." or "...am unable to log in..."

The examples you found use "trouble" as a verb. Your question is about "trouble" as a noun. The rest of the sentence is an adjective phrase describing what kind of "trouble" and requires a gerund, not the infinitive.
