Bonjour! Ne vous inquiétez pas, votre anglais est assez bon! Je regrette que je ne puisse pas vous parler dans le français mais mon français est devenu assez mauvais...
If all of your research/work experience is theoretical it might be hard to do experimental work but you never know.
And being 25 is not too old. Age plays very little if no factor in an admission decision.
By the way, I'm returning to school at the age of 28
I started my bachelors at age 25 and now I'm going to grad school at age 29. Youth is a state of mind!
Perhaps you could get one of your recommenders to write an explanation about France's grading system. I've studied in France at a lycée and I can attest that a French 10/20 is equivalent to a B-, and 16/20 is basically an A+. Also mention it in your statement of purpose.
BTW there are plenty of older graduate students, many of whom have taken years off to work or travel. So your age is not going to be a problem for admissions, but definitely get in contact with your recommenders, remind them who you are.

Héhé, non ce n'est pas si mal !! Juste une chose, on préfère dire : parler en français. Sinon, pas fautes de grammaire ou d'orthographe

And it's also nearly impossible for people who left the system for a while to come back ...

By the way the conversion you give is close to what I found on the web. It would give me a 3.1 GPA, and I think it's quite fair.
