French term or phrase: papier graphique gausso-arithmétique
"Pour étudier la normalité on aurait également pu utiliser le test de la droite de Henry. Cette méthode consiste en l’utilisation d’un papier graphique gausso-arithmétique, spécialement gradué sur lequel une courbe normale devient une ligne droite."

I am looking for a specific kind of paper, which might be a kind of logarithmic paper but with some differencies concerning the vertical scale.

You can find a pretty clear definition of it on the french wikipedia:
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Droite_de_Henry

and some images on google:

It has a symmetrically-stretched Y-axis scale on the left, corresponding to the shape of a Gaussian 'normal' distribution, with a +/– arithmetic scale on the right, enabling certain statistical factors to be read directly off the curve as plotted.

Reference: normal probability paper

Reference information:
« Le Normal Probability Plot, aussi appelé droite de Henry, est une analyse graphique pour vérifier si une série de données est répartie d’une manière « Normale ». Le principe est plutôt simple : à partir de nos données originelles, on va construire une série de données « théoriques » via la loi normale. En traçant un graphique représentant en X nos valeurs originelles et en Y nos valeurs théoriques, nous devrions obtenir une ligne droite si celles-ci sont normales. »
(http://www.wikilean.com/Articles/Analyse/9-Les-tests-d-hypot...

“In a normal probability plot (also called a "normal plot"), the sorted data are plotted vs. values selected to make the resulting image look close to a straight line if the data are approximately normally distributed. Deviations from a straight line suggest departures from normality. The plotting can be manually performed by using a special graph paper, called normal probability paper.”
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normal_probability_plot)

“Normal probability paper is another graph paper with rectangles of variable widths. It is designed so that "the graph of the normal distribution function is represented on it by a straight line", i.e. it can be used for a normal probability plot.”

« Droite de Henri

C’est une pratique tombée en désuétude qui se réalisait sur un papier spécial dit papier gausso-arithmétique qui par anamorphose transformait la sigmoïde de la fonction de répartition de loi normale en une droite. D’après Funkhouser [4], l’intérêt d’une tel papier fut soulignée par Francis Galton en 1899 [5] et introduit aux États-Unis d’Amérique en 1914 par Hazen [7] sous le nom de arithmetic probability paper. Un papier similaire fut introduit indépendamment en Angleterre par Dufton en 1930 sous le nom de permille paper [2], ce même auteur fit d’ailleurs remarquer [3] qu’il y avait une erreur dans l’article de Hazen [7]. En France, la tradition remonte encore plus loin [1], le terme de droite de
Henri fait référence aux cours donnés en 1894 par le colonel Henri `a l’école d’artillerie Fontainebleau [8]. Il a introduit un papier gausso-arithémtique pour vérifier la normalité de la portée de tir des canons (voir aussi [6] pour la solution de Lhoste à l’épineux problème de l’auto-corrélation temporelle des conditions de tir). Le terme de ”droite de Henry” ou ”droite de Henri”1 perdure en France.
