I want to make a processing in Photoshop involging duplicating layers, creating new layer and applying some effects.

It is possible to store this processing as something like a macro, retrieve it and apply it to multiple images?

Yes. You want to use an Action. The actions palette has a recording function, just like a macro.

To apply to multiple images you can then use File > Automate > Batch, select your action and a group of images to process.
