Reading the official documentation  :

it is said that :

 Using these draft-spec extensions may result in code that doesn't work on Firefox, Opera, or IE. 

My question, is that, for my current project that will be in production in 1 or 2 month, should I use Elementals ?

1 or 2 months? I wouldn't use too much experimental stuff then (except SuperDevMode, but that's an experimental dev tool, it's not part of the final app)
I need a compatibility with IE 7 and greater versions, Chrome and Firefox.

IE is a no-go for Elemental. IE9 might be envisaged, if you stick to the very basics (but then you'd better use, HTMLPanel/RenderablePanel and CellWidget).
I also did found a lot of documentation about elemental (neither how to use it, ..., neither inside the javadoc)

Elemental landed just 2 (or was it 3) weeks ago, and then Ray had to concentrate on I/O, and the rest of the team on shipping that 2.5.0 RC1; it's definitely too early to make use of Elemental other than trying it out and/or willing to help make it better.
