i want to create an apple script that will launch a certain application and after it laucnehd just send a KeyPress of "return" key..

This should do it, just put the application name as the applicationName property.
property applicationName : "" --Put the application name inside the speech marks tell application applicationName activate --Open and activate the application tell application "System Events" tell process applicationName try key code 36 --Type the return key on error theError display dialog ("Sorry, an error occured:" & theError) buttons "OK" default button "OK" with icon stop end try end tell end tell end tell
