How to use the free-form in mathematica to give me the tempratures in a specific place in the world from specific timeline?

What should write in the command line?

Thanks.

To use free-form input in a calculation, you can use Interpreter

AirTemperatureData@{{Interpreter["Location"]["Grand Canyon"],
    Interpreter["Date"]["jan 7, 1999"]}}
(* {Quantity[Interval[{17.6, 55.4}], "DegreesFahrenheit"]} *)

Note that Celsius units would have been returned if I weren't in the US. To get a more specific answer, use "DateTime" instead of "Date":

AirTemperatureData@{{Interpreter["Location"]["grand canyon"],
    Interpreter["DateTime"]["8am jan 7, 1999"]}}
(* {Quantity[19.4, "DegreesFahrenheit"]} *)

You can also use WolframAlpha to get the information, but it's a bit trickier to get it in a computable format

WolframAlpha["grand canyon weather jan 7, 1999", "Result"]

First I type ctrl+enter, and then I enter in "temperature in Rio Brazil from june 1, 2014 to june 30, 2014" gives me

AirTemperatureData[
  Entity["City", {"RioDeJaneiro", "RioDeJaneiro", 
   "Brazil"}], {DateObject[{2014, 6, 1}], DateObject[{2014, 6, 30}]}]

which I believe is exactly what you're looking for.

Of course I would recommend learning to do this programmatically.
