    Is there a way to read sudo pass word  (for example from a file ) for executing a command as below
    hdparm -I /dev/sd?|grep -E “Number|/dev”
    or simply is it possible to call hdparm without sudo / password

    Search for sudoers http://linux.die.net/man/5/sudoers. You can configure sudo to not ask the password for "sudo hdparm"
