Is there a way to call a script by clicking a shape or whatever inside the map? Like a tool or a custom script i create. Please I just started on this i need to know if there are some ways to do it.

Within ArcMap? Basically, ArcObjects would be the way... but you said you just started, so I would decide why you need to click on something?  You can get most functionallity to use already selected features, so if the need is to save the 2-step process, I would give a rethink or refocus on your workflow
