Is it possible to make a line compose of small round dots.

Yes, with a bit of hacking.
* Create the path and apply a stroke to it.
* Go to the stroke style settings for the object and change the "Cap"
style from "Butt" to "Round". Select a dash pattern from the
combo. Most of default patterns have to long dashes to make it look

* Now, with the object still selected, open the XML-editor
(Ctrl+Shift+x) and select the style attribute on the right side. Locate
the stroke-dasharray part of the value. Replace the current pair of
values after that with a new pair where the first value is small like
1 or 0.5, and a second value larger than the stroke-width of the line.
E.g. "stroke-dasharray:0.5, 15;".
I've attached an example...
