re:  "Or any command can return the area of certain grid directly?"

There is no explicit function.

[2]
is more appropriate  for area *between* lat(i+1) and lat(i) .. so i=1.5 so
to speak

Maybe ...
area(i,j)=rr*(0.5*(lat(i+1)-lat(i-1)))
lat(i))

[3]
The following a the 'correct' formulation

Good luck
