I don't know where find or what dependencies to use when I will create a package dependencies. It's possible create a depends? For example, in the Tutorial I see rospy, roscpp and std_msgs. Where I can find more and how I can know what dependencies use in my projects? Is there some description about the dependencies?

ROS Melodic Ubuntu 18.04

The package.xml file inside the package that you created contains the information about package dependencies. This is the place to edit the package dependencies.

So, what I want to know is where I can find the list of dependencies in the site of ROS. Because, I know basically three dependencies (rospy, roscpp, std_msgs).

First you need to state an application and see what all available packages are required. Based upon application you might require tf, geometry_msgs, nav_msgs et cetera. Check this ros wiki page:
