Is there a function like copy/paste a position to create a node for example directly in josm by a shortcut ? (like this function permanent link in the map at openstreetmap.org)

Try to load the Plugin utilsplugin2 in JOSM

see http://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Help/Plugin/UtilsPlugin2

there is a LatLon tool for entering coordinates, and one or more nodes will be created.

You don't need any plugin for entering a node at specific coordinates, just press shift-D. However, the question seems a bit unclear to me.

Ok, I mean all the time i have to take a note of a position to re-write the coordinates whatever the shortcut. First, i choose the position on the map with my mouse and write coordinates shown below the window of Josm's application. Then i used the function to put a point and type the coordinates i wrote before.

This isn't safety (i could make a mistake when i wrote) and quite boring...

Is there another way more safety and faster ?

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are trying to do, but maybe you just want to put OpenStreetMap (Mapnik) as an Imagery background in JOSM, press the A key and then double click where you want to create your node.

What gnurk said. You should take a look at the JOSM basic editing guide to learn how to create nodes. You don't have to type any coordinates by hand.
