Hello,
I'm looking for any sources (article in a website / free pdf book / or just the title of a book that I should buy) that can help to know how to comment on books / essays...etc.
thanks in advance.

Go to goodsreads and see how people write on books. I think that's the simplest way.
And think about what a reader would like to know when he reads something about a book he doesn't know.
First the important details, author, title, country, publishing date. The genre. An idea of the contents.
Then your comment, was it a good read, did you like it, and what did you like. Where there things you
didn't like?

In goodreads you have hundreds of books and hundreds of commentaries and you can study how people do it.

Goodreads is a very useful website. At one time I found a lot of useful information there.
