Having recently read/ watched shows like konosuba, is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon, no game no life and in another world with my smartphone I have been doing some thinking. Does anyone know if a manga exists where the main character is someone who lives in and has grown up in a fantasy world and then someone from another world shows up as their sidekick? I've seen/ read a lot of the guy dies and is reborn in fantasy world but I'd be interested in reading a story where they're not the main protagonist.

That's not very common unfortunately. Parallel world series have been around a LONG time. However, the focus on hikki protags has been a shift in the genre. If you look back at older series like MAZE, and Fushigi Yuugi, you'll see that heroines were actually a staple of the genre for a while (assuming you're looking to mix things up). Because the parallel nature of the series is usually a major plot device, it's not very common for a character to be sidelined from another world.

Inuyasha actually fits your requirements. Inuyasha is from a fantasy setting and is joined by kagome from a future, mostly non-magical setting. That is the closest thing I can think of where a main sidekick assists a lead character native to a fantasy setting.

Oh my gosh, I never bothered to remember the name, but there is something similar in a manga.

Two girls get summoned to be spiritual magic maidens or something to save a fantasy world, but the thing is, they only intended to summon one.
The pretty girl gets picked to be the heroine and she lives the shojo manga protagonist life where everyone loves her and she saves the world with magic. The other girl, who is much more plain, is thrilled with the old fashioned setting and tries to live a quiet life enjoying cool architecture and her new magician mentor. Or that's how it would have been if the pretty girl was actually equipped to do her job. It turns out the plain girl was the one who actually had any magical powers, and now she must stealthily stalk the heroine and cover for her.

I'll come back if I ever remember what it was called.
Anyway, keep looking around. Isekai gets more and more ridiculous with each month, to the point where I can't tell if it's satirical or sincere anymore. There's one where a guy is reborn as a hot spring.
