Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

When I search for "swimming pool near paris", I get a list of result. I would like to see those results on the map to show which one is the nearest from my home.

Is they a way to view the results on the map ?

Even better: Is it possible to know the travel time to go to each one using bus or tube ?

The openstreetmap.org website is primarly geared towards the needs of OSM contributors and not towards requirements of more general consumers of the map data.

It would however be completly possible to implement what you want with existing OpenStreetMap services, you would simply need to either write the necessary glue (display all nominatim search results on a map, caclulate distance from a prededfined location with one of the many routing engines) yourself or convince somebody else to do so.

There are sites based on OSM data that provide at least some of the things you want

and likely many more.
