is it possible to apply shear transformation onto a single objet without hierarchy tricks
like if you rotate an object under a non uniform scale. as i have not seen any place to type that, i wondered if it was possible

you're not just thinking of the Skew modifier, I take it?

Or are you looking to do it to the matrix it self?

yes. that's it! writing the matrix
and since i'm a bit new to 3dsmax i don't know how to proceed

if you are familiar with transformation matrices from other applications, then you can apply much the same knowledge in 3ds Max. You can get / set an object's transformation matrix using:

var= <object>.transform
<object>.transform = matrix3
