Is there such a thing as papers / processes that make inkjet print look close to "wet" / "oily" painting? If yes I would appreciate pointers in right direction.

Canvas will do that. Printed then covered with glossy coating. You can even dab on bits of real acrylic/oil paints on top of the coating to give it some depth.

To add to Neil's canvas suggestion, you can also try using Breathing Color's Glamour II as a texturizing gel on finished, sealed canvas prints.  See, http://www.breathingcolor.com/blog/using-glamour-ii-as-a-texturizing-gel-on-canvas-prints/  For a bit more, you can try embellishing gels such as Eco Elegance, see, http://www.itsupplies.com/search?criteria=embellishing

Thank you guys! I know I will go down the canvas road in the future but I am not ready for that yet. In the meantime are there 2nd / 3rd best alternative path to my goal that would be easier?

Hit your local fine art store for some Gold's acrylic clear coat. it comes in several viscosities and the thicker ones can be blended/moved to produce those thick brush in paint textures. one note, I find it to be slightly tacky even after a long dry time, don't stack coated things together or they glue themselves just enough to mar the surface. this stuff is specifically made to add volume to paint so it'll really give you that stand up texture and it looks wet when dry (looks semi opaque when wet - don't freak).
