I am new to use STAR. Can someone please help me to understand me whether I can use STAR to map many reference genomes together in a single command without using any created C++ code? I try to do the same with bowtie2 ,but I could not do it. It will be also helpful if someone can inform me the above for bowtie2.

There is no coding needed for an end-user to use either of these programs. Both programs offer well annotated user manuals that are easy to under. It should be easy to find links to those manuals by web searches.

STAR to map many reference genomes together

STAR is not designed for this application. It is designed to map short reads to a reference genome. So if your need is above then neither of these programs are appropriate.
