Security Enhanced linux

I am using Fedora 14. By default Security Enhanced Linux is enabled in Fedora 14. Now is there any way to disable it by command line and then again enable it through command line.

You could change the SE Linux policies either to enabled or disabled or even permissive using setenforce command.

to disable it, use
setenforce 0
The above link gives you more information on it. You could also change the settings in the /etc/selinux/config file.

After disabling Security Enhanced Linux by typing "Setenforce 0" in command line, then is there any way to enable it again (I am using Fedora 14).

Did you try this?
"Use Enforcing or 1 to put SELinux in enforcing mode. Use Permissive or
0 to put SELinux in permissive mode. You need to modify /etc/grub.conf
or /etc/selinux/config to disable SELinux."
Also check this link enable/disable SElinux
