My Software Centre has crashed. Then I don't have any other ways to install packages. Please tell me how to install main menu (editor) using the terminal. I need main menu (editor) for editing my menu and installing other softwares in my Ubuntu 13.04 desktop.

Your questions are confusing. How did Software Center crash? What does it do when you run it? What editor are you referring to? gedit should be installed already. What are you trying to edit? What were you doing that caused this? –  Marc Jul 14 '13 at 15:33

Editing the main menu will not help you, it is not displayed under Unity. –  guntbert Jul 14 '13 at 17:22

You can install the menu editor from command line with

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install alacarte

As I said in my comment, that will not enable you to install software in a graphical mode.

You should fix the problem you have with Ubuntu Software Center - I suppose you will run into some error when you execute above commands. If yes edit your question to show us eventual error messages.
