>>On a PE R720, with a PERC H710P Mini and a 8 (15k RPM SAS 6Gb - 600GB) drives RAID5 array, can I replace one faulty HDD with a 7,5k RPM SAS 6Gb - 2TB drive ?

I would recommend examining the applicable hardware and software release notes for your HBA.

1) PERC H710P Mini -> LSI SAS2208
2) 8 disks x 15k rpm ->  ST3600057SS
        {Cache: 16MB, Average Seek Time: 3.4ms, Average Write Time: 3.9ms, Average Latency: 2ms}
3) 1 disk x 7,5k rpm -> ES.3 ST32000445SS
        {Cache: 128MB, Average Seek Time: 8.5ms ms, Average Write Time: 9.5ms ms, Average Latency: 4.16ms}
