you can try software like this to make it easier. But there are no commands to do it manually. You have to go into each program to clear those unless you using third-party software

Unless you know the scripts to be executed, I would suggest TuneUp Utilities, which has all the options you mentioned and can be scheduled to execute them, else a freeware like CCleaner.
