How to set sepcial topic (Support.WebHome) as standard topic parent

Does anybody know, how to fix the standard topic parent to one special topic. For example I would like, that everyone who creates a new topic, gets WebHome automatically as topic parent in any case. Nevertheless it still should be possible to choose manually other topics as parent topic.

The way you would set that up depends in part on which skin you are using. In both PatternSkin and NatSkin, the link provided to create new topics includes a parameter for the parent topic (e.g. "?topicparent=WebHome" ), however each skin implements this link in slight different ways.

In PatternSkin, the link is provided in the sidebar which can be configured on a per-web basis (see PatternSkin: Top, Bottom and Left Bar customization. You can simply edit the default link to WebCreateNewTopic and add the parameter to your default topic parent. The form still allows for changing the topic parent.

NatSkin provides a link in the topic top-bar to create new topics. See NatSkin#WebComponents for more information about customizing "TopicActions" WebComponent. If you need more help on this, let me know.
