Seachem Buffer raise a bit calcium, and raise KH. There's other Seachems product only to increase calcium

No product (besides a water change) can raise both calcium and alkalinity at the same time. You have to use a 2 part, or 3 part (magnesium) additive.

Yeah, carbonate calcium raise both KH and calcium ? Am I wrong ?

But I think you need a calcium reactor to do this.. As calcium is low soluble in water, but very soluble in carbonated water.

It can't. Calcium and alkalinity work against each other. Have a look at this-
