Is MediaWiki suitable to install a site that would host a database (like wikidata)?

Yes, wikidata is a central database powered by mediawiki to store data open for use under CCO public domain licence.

The content on How does MediaWiki work? seems to overlap a lot with this page. Also, How does MediaWiki work? doesn't actually explain how the software work - it explains what the software is. I recognize these were originally intended for different audiences - but I think with a little effort they can serve both purposes.

Varnent, I am inclined to agree with you. In fact, it almost seems to me that the page What is MediaWiki? is more descriptive of the content of How does MediaWiki work?! Both pages are brief, which is perfectly fine. However there is overlap. How does MediaWiki work? should probably include additional content about how the software does work. The explanation of what the software is, that exists at present on the How does MediaWiki work page, could be moved nearly intact, perhaps shortened a bit, to the What is MediaWiki page, I think?

(1) Which kind of page should create in this wiki? (2) Is there a relation between Media Wiki and main Wikipedia?

The article says, "MediaWiki is a free server-based software…". As you can't have "a sand", likewise you cannot have "a software". Both words are uncountable. You can have "a software program" or "a software product". Alternatively, you can simply remove the article "a": MediaWiki is free server-based software….
