I've seen quite a number of forums use it for article management, and yes the permissions settings allow you choose which user groups can add or edit articles.

1 Can I add existing articles/posts to that section ("articles section"/xfrm)?
2 If some one will post anywhere article post, will that post appears in "articles section"/xfrm?

Thank you, I know that now we can create arctilces anywhere, but I asked about article management, like AMS or xenporta addons but I want use native solution without 3-rd party addons.

Try XFRM in a demo to see if it meets your needs.
Thank you, I checked it.

But I think that best solution will be use separate node with Articles type, and sorting articles categories by prefixes like it suggested by beenForo. But I still cant find how I can add side menu (or something like that) to that node that will be have categories from prefixes list.

maybe some addon? or xf 2.2.2 have built-in tools for this?

I use this. Members really like it.

but how members can sort articles by prefixes?
When you are in a forum if you click the prefix it sorts it. It's not exactly intuitive since you can't click them from everywhere. I find the filter bar helps in that regard. You also have the Filters menu option on the top right, natively.
