I have an Infopath 2010 form.
All I need is to be able to use several form fields in the data connection query definition.
I've searched a lot but I don't find out if this is possible or not.

The answer depends on what type of form you started with. If you choose a database type form then it is built to allow you to query and submit to one table or set of related tables. Any other type of form you can query, with static parameters but not dynamically. secondary data connections, except for web services cannot dynamically query.
Another gotcha in 2010 is that forms are web compatible and limited in their controls, you may need to go into form options and compatibility and change it to a filler form.
