WebLoad vs. LoadRunner
Since I need to test certain website (in both functionality and load)using either Webload by RAD or Load Runner by Mercury, I would like to know which tool is better providing me both things.

What kind of performance testing are you looking to do? Is this going to be simple transaction loads or are you looking at doing full suites of load and stress tests? Also: what is your environment? Do you have database servers or application servers?
As far as functional testing, it depends on how robust you want to be. LoadRunner and WebLoad are not really geared for that (being performance tools) although WebLoad does offer what they consider a functional testing solution built within the WebLoad tool but, in reality, this is really no different (or better) than LoadRunner's VUGen. If you are talking about actual full functional/regression testing you may want to consider a functional testing tool solution such as Mercury's WinRunner (which can run through LoadRunner if you buy the licensing).
