In Emacs info mode, it is possible to press <ent> on a hyperlink to follow it. However, it is possible to return to the previous page after opening the link? Also, it is possible to open the link in a new buffer (other than the default *info*)?

Note that I use the command line, so any GUI feature won't work.

As you found yourself, type l to return to the previous page.

You can open a link in a new buffer by using a prefix argument: C-u RET instead of just RET.
