    Control + F is for searches? In Safari, the equivalent is Command + F. To search your computer, it's Command + Space.

    Command + W = Alt + F4 (this closes windows). To quit apps, use Command + Q

    Equivalent for CAD is Command + Alt + Esc

    cmd+option+escape to force quit an application.

    For activity monitoring, I know where it is but don't know what's the name in english (Using French version of OS X).

    The Apple key(called command) is the equivalent on CTRL on a Mac. So Command + F should do what you need.

    I don't know what Alt + 4 does, so I can't comment on that.

    Command + Option(Alt) + Esc opens the Force Quit dialogue, which is the equivalent of CTRL + ALT + DEL.

    You should have guessed! You would have been awfully close close. It's called Activity Monitor, and is located in Applications > Utilities. This is the equivalent to the Windows Task Manager.
