Is it possible to use your companion to loot?
How can I do it?

it will be great, specially for loots away from you, instead of you coming back for the loot, you send your companion and keep moving

You cannot have your companion loot, but you can enable area loot in your preferences / controls option. It has quite a wide reach so it's very convenient as well.

You could play a healer class and stand behind the fight and let your companion do all the fighting while you heal him/her/it, then pick up the loot on the way.

How is fighting relevant in any way to this discussion?
-What should I mentally prepare for as a new healer?
People thinking that you heal them out in spite of any **** they do!
