After you introduce this line “airodump-ng wlan0”, I can’t write anything after. What should I do so that “root@kali:#” appear in order to continue to introduce other commands.

Bro, press “ctrl+C”. Or open a new terminal without closing the previous one. As we need it to get bssid , channel and the name of network we are cracking.

Because the last command was write in “sudo” mode so you need to enter you “sudo” password which is usually root or thor.
Btw line10 is wrong if you want to reset your ifconfig you should write

sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode manager
instead of
sudo iwcofnig wlan0 mode monitor
