    you are right. for example if somebody gets into home and says who is in?
    may I answer: it's me.
    and whether somebody ask the phone about me? May I aswer: That's me?
    Is it correct?

    Please remember that captial letters are important when writing English correctly.

    Who's there?
    It's me. (There are people who say you must say "It's I." Ignore those people.)

    Caller: May I speak to Barb pelase?
    Barb: This is Barb. This is she. (Many people will tell you this is very formal. They are right.) Barb speaking. Speaking.

    Husband, answering phone: Hello?
    Barb: Hi honey. It's me. (He will recognize my voice.)

    A: Who is this a picture of?
    B: That's me!
    A: You were a cute baby.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    You are right. For example if somebody gets into comes to my home and says "Who is in?", may I answer "It's me"?

    And whether if somebody asks about me on the phone, about me? may I answer "That's me"?

    Is it Are they correct?
    Barb has given you the answer but I have taken both your posts and added all the relevant capital letters and punctuation. Look at them carefully. They are both very important in written English.
