Yes it is possible through Label Feeds. You can add certain labels and whenever you will publish posts on that label it would display them on Homepage. It is not that simple but we are working on it. Soon, we will release a tutorial on it.

Is it possible, as a reader, to know if the post date has been modified?
I mean that if I write a post today and I change the date to yesterday´s, is there a way to know the true date of the post? Or is there any indication that marks the date as edited?

You can simple write a note at the bottom of the post indicating it was last edited on xyz date.
