    Is there a way that I can draw a line (straight or arc) in Stellarium? I heard about scripting; no clue how to use it.
    Thanx

    Generally no. But it depends on what you want the lines for.

    By using the line drawing capabilities in the skycultures you can make a pseudo set of lines or curves using the constellationship.fab, costellationart.fab and constellations_boundaries.dat

    There is some information in the user manual

    As far as I know you can't draw arcs. Lines are pretty easy -- think of it as dot to dot.

    Here's the part of the user manual that briefly describes adding lines:
    http://www.stellarium.org/wiki/index.php/Advanced_Use#Sky_Cultures

    The files you need to edit to create lines can be opened in Notepad, but I strongly suggest you use a coding-friendly Notepad alternative.
