Can you write a list of all the RPi available softwares, who might use them, their benefits and a download link for each? (Even the ones that are not on the official website)

This might be a bit difficult. As I recall, there are about 20000 software packages available for the RPi.

To browse through the list, install the Synaptic package manager.
sudo apt-get install synaptic

and run Synaptic
synaptic

It will take a while for Synaptic to load the list and become responsive, so be patient at the beginning.

Also, note that Linux software is not downloaded from a link. To install a package called xxx use the command
sudo apt-get install xxx

or you can select the package in Synaptic and mark it for installation.
