I have 10 old computers (like thin clients) without HDD. So i decided to use Lubuntu as Operating System. In my work we have a PXE server with DHCP and TFTP, they built a debian distro before and for the menu.cfg, they used boot=live but in lubuntu they use nfs and boot must be boot=casper, so here my problem begins, i tried to change the vmlinuz and initrd, but then i am getting a kernel panic error. Is there a script that i can merge squashfs and initrd.gz, so the thin clients will begin directly over initrd.gz. OR is there any other solution?

Look into https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PXEInstallMultiDistro

I was once able to successfully boot lubuntu over the network with ease (as a live cd). I do not know whether you are looking for a live cd option or if you want to have a true thin client solution. However, I have recently been having troubles figuring out how to get NFS working properly. See my post on it..... What nfs export settings do I need to boot the Ubuntu live discs over a network?
