I need to automate the task of search and install Windows 7 and 8 updates through the command line(it could be over cmd, vbs or powershell), there is some way?

Out of the box it can be a PITA to do (You need to do some COM stuff), but Microsoft provides an additional powershell module that exposes the commandlet Get-WUInstall that acts as a wrapper to make it a lot easier.

Powershell is the way of the future. – surfasb Sep 19 '13 at 9:15
