I have a third party CGI program which can be called using http://myWeb/aCgiProg?nameA=valueA&nameB=valueB.

Just wonder if is it possible to call the CGI program  "aCgiProg" from another CGI program ?  How can I pass parameters from one CGI program to another CGI program?

You can use redirect for this.
Your CGI script doing something and then out to the stream
header with:

Status: 301 Moved Permanently
Location: http://site/other_cgi_script?some_params

I have tried to do this (written in C):

printf("Status: 301 Moved Permanently\n\n");
printf("Location: http://site/other_cgi_script?some_params");

Only the string "Location: http://site/other_cgi_script?some_params" printed out but didn't call "other_cgi_sctipt".  

WHY????

Location - is the part of the HTTP header !
Try this:
main(){
printf ("Content-type: text/html\n");
printf ("Status: 302 Moved Temporarily\n");
printf ("Location: http://site/cgi-bin/printenv?uraaa\n\n");
}
