Joomla! 2.5: Component as Article

Can you put a component on a page together with other articles? Like, for example, to have a component and a blog layout on the "Home" page?

Yes, you can! There are some nice extensions that allow for this. I used the "Plugin Include Component" plugin, which is available on extensions.joomla.org. With this plugin, you simply create an article that contains a special tag, indicating the component to include.

Just like this:

Install the plugin and put the following code in whatever article you need it in (substitute 'componentName' and 'viewname' for your component's and view's name...).

{component url='index.php?option=com_componentName&view=viewname'}
