How can I use these at screen command option ( not in .screenrc ) ?

If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to execute screen commands within a running screen session.

The OP responded directly to me, and said that I wasn't understanding him* correctly. He wants a way to pass screen commands on the initial screen command line instead of having a .screenrc.

My understanding, from this thread and other messages he's posted, is that he has a great number of servers that he wants to connect to and then run screen, and doesn't want to create a .screenrc on each.

Unfortunately, the version of screen that I have doesn't offer a "provide options on the command line" switch, and screen doesn't work with bash process substitution:
  $ screen <( echo "hardstatus on" )
  Unable to open "/dev/fd/63".
