Initially PCBs were designed manually by creating a photomask on a clear mylar sheet, usually at two or four times the true size. Starting from the schematic diagram the component pin pads were laid out on the mylar and then traces were routed to connect the pads. If you have many questions of PCB Design, please come here!

Is there any PCB design software where I can design & route common part of design, and make it some kind of 'component'?

gEDA's gschem can also help you. I haven't tried with gEDA PCB, but I don't see why it wouldn't be any different from another symbol footprint.

Altium Designer can solve your problem.

Altium has what they term "Recyclable Schematics" - Schematic layouts that 
you can paste into larger schematics and treat as components.
