Before I dive in, I would like to know if SS has the capabilities of:
1. nested content, something like a control nested in another control, only for data - without me adding modules/sql/code.
2. Can I retrieve whatever info I need through its interface? - maybe it reminds "drupal".

1. All pages are hierarchical by default. Not quick sure what you mean by controls nested in other controls, or 'only for data'.
2. It has a full featured Content Management System.
Give the Demo a go - should answer most of your questions.

Hi & thanks for the quick reply.
What I meant is - without 'hacking' ss source, can I visually create complex web controls (whatever they are called here) or use ASP.Net controls?

Nested controls are supported.

No, you don't need to hack the source to create complex webpage elements. You might need to write some code (just as your would for an ASP.Net control), but one of the purposes of SilverStripe is provide a development platform that makes this sort of thing easy.
...or use ASP.Net controls?
No, you can't use ASP.Net controls - SilverStripe is a PHP application.

I missed up with these ASP.Net controls(-
