What is the best component to make a layer 2 switch with :
- 10G SFP+ port X2
- 1G SFP port X16
- Manageable (CPU can be extern)
- VLAN, Spanning Tree, IGMP Snooping, LACP, RADIUS 802.1X, MIB Monitoring.
I thing BCM53161XM is the good choice but I'm not sure.

Yes, the BCM53161XM is good choice for L2 switch.
By your requirement, do you need the 16ports 1GE SFP fiber? or 16ports 1GE copper?
BCM53161XM meets within your requirement besides the "1G SFP x16".
BCM53161XM supports only 4 SGMII ports.
