I want to create a sub menu, where the parent item is text only (not a link).

I've done so by making the parent item a text separator type menu item and making sub-menu items by selecting it as the parent for other menu items.

Now the URLs of the pages who are sub-menu items of that text separator are /parent-page/page.

How can I achieve my inital task but with the URLs of the sub-menu items just be root.com/page?

There are a number of ways. If your needs are only as you say then then first of these is best.

  1. Use the direct alias plugin https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/direct-alias/

  2. Make the real menu items in a hidden menu and then add menu aliases to the visible menu

  3. install an sef component like artio JoomSEF which lets you override every url
