If we can connect the torque τ with the velocity precession Ω and angular momentum L, as: τ = Ω L. So, analogouslly, exist a equation that connect the force F, the linear momentum P and with some velocity? I.e., exist a linear version for equation τ = Ω L? Which?

There is no linear analog to precession. Torque is the time rate of change of angular momentum and force is the time rate of change of linear momentum.
