I've read What if I don’t get a good answer? and in meta What is the purpose of favoriting questions?.

  • Do favoriting (clicking the star) highlight my question to others ?
  • Is there a way to do that ?

No, favoriting a question does nothing, to my knowledge, to better highlight a question. If you're looking to get your question highlighted the best way to do so is with a bounty.

You can have your question "bumped" by editing and adding more details about the problem, things you've tried, or clarifying items.

Adding more detail bumps your question each time, generally speaking the more information you add the more attention your question gets, getting you more question votes. The key is to keep updating your question with the new information you've found. –  Jorge Castro Feb 11 '13 at 16:24
    
@JorgeCastro : Do bump mean going up in the question stack ? –  NicolasWeb Feb 11 '13 at 18:08

It'll show up in the front page, which will give it attention, which will hopefully get your question more votes, which will then move it up the question stack. –  Jorge Castro Feb 11 '13 at 18:09
