    Hello!
    First, I've tried to find a plugin that can do this for me but I failed.

    I want to show on my front page certain number of articles/posts with big thumbanails and more intro text and some articles to be shown in short in two columns. Like this one, this one, this, this. You get the idea...

    Do you know the way I can achieve this?

    That would defy your static page.

    You wouldn't do that with a plugin, you would need to create a template for the homepage which pulls in the content you want.

    Many themes (especially commercial ones, but some free ones as well) have such a template included.

    You can use a static page for your home & manually assign a specific page template for this but, would probably be better to create a home.php template.
