I'm a manager of teams SharePoint classic website that exist since 2018. lately I notice that modern element started to appear. My question is: can I convert my website to modern SharePoint by converting the pages layout and webparts without creating a new website?

Yes, you can do it...but bear in mind the process of converting a classic site into a modern one only takes effect on the top site and not on any subsite you might have. Also bear in mind the limitations you have on the process: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/transform/modernize-classic-sites
