Hello

I looked in the adobe help (https://helpx.adobe.com/fr/lightroom-classic/help/keyboard-shortcuts.html) for ways to control the cursors of the Development module by shortcut keys but I found nothing to do for Exposure +1 or +10 or Highlights -1 or -10 for example. 

However, I discovered some very useful hidden (?) shortcuts like CTRL + -> to move to the next image when you are adjusting the zippers of the development module with +/-. 

Do you know if it is possible to control some zippers of the development module with keyboard shortcuts?

The best you can do with the built-in shortcuts is to use "." and "," to move focus to the next and previous sliders, "=" or "+" to increase a slider, "-" to decrease a slider, and holding down Shift to increase or decrease by a larger amount.  (It sounds like you've already figured this out.)

Adobe's documentation of LR's shortcuts is woefully incomplete and sometimes wrong.  See here for the most authoritative list of shortcuts: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/keyboard-shortcuts/

You might investigate the MIDI2LR plugin. It is widely used to connect MIDI controllers to LR, but it has a facility for assigning keyboard shortcuts to most things you can do in Develop. I don't know if you can use it without actually having a MIDI controller present.
