is it possible to rename the 'home' page to 'Welcome'?
I've renamed it in the CMS, but when I run a dev/build SilverStripe shouldn't think: oh 'home' page is missing, lets create one.
When I rename 'home' in the CMS to 'Welcome' it must be recognized as the home page So after dev/build it shouldn't create 'home' again.
Is this possible?

This is unfortunately caused by the Require default records function of SiteTree. It may be possible to over-ride this function with a decorator. Or, if you don't mind editing core files, you could just delete it! But that is naughty.
Hope that helps

I also need a solution for this. Has anyone created a working hack for this?

It should only create a Homepage when no page with the URL 'home' is found. As long as you leave the page with the URL 'home' (note the URL is normally rewritten to / anyway) it will be fine. When renaming the page to 'Welcome' just click cancel on the change URL prompt. If you want to change the URL to welcome as well your asking for trouble.

You can add SiteTree::set_create_default_pages(false); into your config.
But if the URLSegment 'home' isn't found in the SiteTree, SS will redirect to the first page e.g. 'welcome'. So it is better to maintain the Welcome Page with the URLSegment 'home'.

I created a pull request for 2.4.x to add the ability to override the homepage URL segment. Hopefully it will get used to provide this functionality.
