I want o have English for my system interface and settings, but French for locale (region), including time (weekdays, months, which appear in conky etc).

But in Xfce the time language is set along with the system's, not with the locale/region:

language

Can we set the time language separately from the main one (system, interface)?

Yes.

Edit he file /etc/default/locale and add/edit the line LC_TIME=

In Linux Mint Xfce:

sudo xed  /etc/default/locale

It looks like so:

#  File generated by update-locale
LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="fr_FR.UTF-8"
