Both will probably work OK for the purpose. Use whatever you are more familiar with.

there is not a lot of documentation on Centos. Is it possible to use the Redhat's documentation?

Yes, certainly. The parts that relate to Red Hat Network and subscriptions and licenses etc do not apply, but other than those, RH's documentation applies to CentOS as well.

I honestly think that the question is not particularly relevant. You can install/uninstall any package after the installation with yum. You can even turn a minimal install into a full-fledged software development workstation with GUI afterwards if you want to.

But here's a package listing from a minimal install in any case:

Maybe? This depends on your exact requirements. But as I mentioned, installing any missing packages is just a "yum install" away. For example, you would probably need to yum install dhcp after the installation to get a DHCP server, if you want that, or select that directly from the installer (if you use e.g. the DVD .iso for the install).

i know that's not adviced to install a GUI on a server but it can be useful. Is it possible to install a GUI while installing Centos7 minimal?

No, minimal is command line only. It has just over 200 packages installed out of the box. If you want a GUI then you need to use the ordinary DVD iso instead.
