Have you a recommandation of HDD (+2to) for a NAS server with a raspberry pi b+ please ?

And I would like know if it's possible automaticaly turn on/off the hdd when the raspberry don't call a movie. By example on windows, if I don't use the file inside my second hdd, the hdd don't run, but if I open a folder inside this hdd, the hdd run.

Anything that's a normal drive should be fine, since the USB storage protocol is standardized and individual devices should not require any special drivers (unlike, e.g., wifi adapters).

See man hdparm (you may have to install hdparm first, on raspbian apt-get install hdparm). By default power saving modes aren't enabled, but

hdparm -B 127 [device]

should do it, then e.g. hdparm -S 241 [device] will set it to idle after 30 minutes of inactivity.
