How can I do a mouse scroll on a Finder window in AppleScript ?
I know there is
keystroke for the keyboard,
click for a mouse click, but is there something for the mouse wheel ?

You can set scroll bar position using Apple Script. In Finder without horizontal scroll bar You can do something like:
activate application "Finder" tell application "System Events" tell process "Finder" -- range is from 0.0 to 1.0, so to scroll halfway you would use 0.5 set value of scroll bar 1 of scroll area 2 of splitter group 1 of front window to 0.0 end tell end tell
