I mean without joining with my computer to the search. Is it possible to get the money for the (Mersenne-)prim this way?
Sure -- just publish a proof that your number is prime in a reputable journal, and then you can ask the EFF for the dough. In that regard, read the EFF Cooperative Computing Awards Rules (link previously posted).

Regarding getting your discovery published, your spelling and grammar could use some work. Of course, you need a valid primality proof first...
