The X450 has your copper port plus 4 shared optical ports.  You can only use one or the other of the ports at the same time.  If you look at the front of the switch there is a yellowish line over the optical ports as well as the corresponding copper ports, if you have the copper ports occupied you cannot use the fiber and vice versa.

ok, so if i unplug for example 24 ethernet port number (wich is already configured with 30 tagged vlans) and plug the correspondant optical port number 24, i can use all the vlans on optical port without any config .?

Yes that is correct... the port configuration is for either the copper or optic port #...

good
the trunk port for that switch will be 1:24 (actual copper port) or 1:25 ?  (because i found that there is 1:25 and 1:26 which are not hardly marked on ports).

Is it an X450a or X450e?
Ports 25 and 26 are on the back of that switch, and will only be available if there's an XGM module installed.
You can see the front ports and the green/yellow line up close in this image:
