How can I lower the page number (something about 0.5 cm) without modyfying the rest of page?
(Only visible change should be different position of page number).

-

The length dictating the distance between the text block and your page number (contained within the footer), is \footskip. Modifying the length will only move the footer up/down. For example, add
\setlength{\footskip}{20pt}

For more on lengths between document elements, consider reading the documentations of layouts and geometry.
How can I know what is my current (default) \footskip? How can I include it in my document? Eg. I would like to print My footskip is 10pt. –  Jan Ajan Mar 13 '12 at 23:12
mwrep's default \footskip is 24pt. To see this, use \showthe\footskip somewhere in your document and check your .log file. If you want to print the value within your document, use \the\footskip after \begin{document}. So, you mind be interested in My footskip is \the\footskip. –  Werner Mar 13 '12 at 23:16
