I'm wondering if it's possible because some touchwiz apps are greats !

Unfortunately, this does not seem possible because touchwiz and its associated components all use different libraries, different frameworks, and various other complex components of the Android operating system that Samsung customizes. In most cases, its not possible to take a system apk from one ROM and just drop it into another ROM, and expect it to work. It may force close, or exhibit some other strange behavior. Sometimes, you can get a developer to change and modify libraries or frameworks to get the app to work, but it is a tremendous amount of work to convert these kinds of things. All this being said, if you want an app from a different ROM to work, it doesn't hurt to try to push apps to /system, as I've had some luck pushing apk's to system, fixing permissions and getting them to work fine. Hopefully, you can find an app equivalent to the Touchwiz SMS app that works just as well, if not better!
