Is there a way to select and display the last X approved comments regardless of which posts or categories they belong to ?

I just want to show on my home page the last comments added on my site, but I can't find anywhere how to do that.

A slightly more complete and less abrupt answer.

$args = array(
    'status' => 'approve',
    'number' => '5'
$comments = get_comments($args);
foreach($comments as $comment) :
    // display any of the following indexes as you'd like

Use get_comments() and don't pass a post id.
