My current website is hosted on a website called my hosting panel.

It has Plesk installed over there, and it's really frustrating trying to upload files, see the changes, since you put takes you to plesk main website, and takes you to your uploaded site files.

FTP passwords didn't work. Sometimes, using takes you again to the damn plesk "welcome" page.

One week has passed, and support team couldn't fix it.

I would like to know if it's possible to change my hosting, and publish my files on another hosting company. Or do I have to wait 60 days to make this change on DNS?

thank you.

I believe the "60-day hold" rules you are thinking about refers to ICANN's policy on transferring domain names between registrars. Not to changing your DNS settings which would allow you to move your website to another host.

Policy on Transfer of Registrations between Registrars

So, unless you have some sort of minimum service-length contract with the web host, you should be able to move between them freely.
