Currently my homepage is showing my lastest posts but I want to replace it with a page.

I wish that all the posts could still be seen in a widget and by clicking on "news" in the menu.

I already do that for custom types with http://website.com/customtypename/ which shows all my lastest items. Just by adding this URL to my main menu

Is there the same URL already existing for posts?

I am guessing this page from the WordPress Codex provides all the info you need. – its_me Jun 17 '12 at 16:36

As mentioned in the comments, you want to replace your home page with a static front page under Settings > Reading. Then you'll create a new page and set it as your posts page in the same setting. The slug of that new page then determines the URL of the posts page.
