Do you have a backup?

In general, It is not possible - unless you look into advance restore from the inode tables. (Which I am not familiar with)

Do you think any of these command works
restore -C [-cklMvVy [-b blocksize ] ] [-D filesystem ] [-f file ] [-F script ] [-L limit ] [-s fileno ] [-T directory ]
 restore -i [-achklmMNuvVy [-A file ] ] [-b blocksize ] [-f file ] [-F script ] [-Q file ] [-s fileno ] [-T directory ]
 restore -P file [-achklmMNuvVy [-A file ] ] [-b blocksize ] [-f file ] [-F script ] [-s fileno ] [-T directory ] [-X filelist ] [file ...]
 restore -R [-cklMNuvVy [-b blocksize ] ] [-f file ] [-F script ] [-s fileno ] [-T directory ]
 restore -r [-cklMNuvVy [-b blocksize ] ] [-f file ] [-F script ] [-s fileno ] [-T directory ]
 restore -t [-chklMNuvVy [-A file ] ] [-b blocksize ] [-f file ] [-F script ] [-Q file ] [-s fileno ] [-T directory ] [-X filelist ] [file ...]
 restore -x [-achklmMNuvVy [-A file ] ] [-b blocksize ] [-f file ] [-F script ] [-Q file ] [-s fileno ] [-T directory ] [-X filelist ] [file ...]

my question is how these command can be used for the above removed files

please help.

'Restore' is used to restore from a 'dump' backup, not in the delete / restore context.

I am not aware there is any commands in linux you can undo a rm. What about copying the files from another server?

The old fashioned way is a difficult and manual process.  If you haven't already stopped the processes that save files to the disk partition that you've deleted from, you may be out of luck.

First thing to do is to stop everything.  Reboot into single user mode, if you can. init 1

Then you'll have to find your files.
grep -b 'search-text' /dev/partition > file.txt
grep -a -B[size before] -A[size after] 'text' /dev/[your_partition] > file.txt
grep -i -a -B10 -A100 'nixCraft' /dev/sda1 > file.txt

But now there are some utilities to help you.  If you've deleted it from the /boot or running root partition (/)  You should stop your system immediately and take the disk out.
