I'd like to know if it's possible to create a hover panel like the field's one, but in a button.

If I hover the mouse in the button, I want to see a help message like in the field, in other words, I want to see an odoo help message instead of a browser help message(HTML).

Add your help message to the xml attribute help like this:

<button  name="name" type="object" string="Generate"  help="your help message"/>
