Wooden grip, why ?
I never knew why wooden grips aren't in carbon like the rest of the racket. So I ask you, if anybody know.
Thank you in advance

Simply because carbon graphite is very brittle. Wood is a lot more flexible/malleable (able to absorb the force of impact from the hand grip) but still strong and you cannot use metal even though it is the toughest as it will be too heavy.
You can find out more from Wikipedia regarding each material.

Yes, wood is better at absorbing the impact from the hit. Victor had a racket with carbon graphite handle but it supposedly felt too harsh on the hand, which can be tiresome after a while.

But it is possible to have wood in another part of the racket like the shaft for example ? I know this allow less high end technologies but just in theories.

Common sense (and a little searching at Wikipedia) seems to answer most of your questions.
