in the finite elements (CAE) there are a lot of way for achieving values between nodes but is it true that all equation for achieving values between nodes, indeed find the equation of a line or a plane that cross the nodes and if we give a position to that equation we could get the values?

so for triangular element if we could find a plane that cross the three nodes, we could achieve values between nodes.

if so what happened for 3D element?

That is kind of right. All values are determined at the integration points of the elements. The values at the nodes are determined from the element shape functions.
