automatic login by using ssh but with out creating public key


I want to connect to anothere server from my current server through SSH command.

when I am using the command in the terminal like-- ssh username@ip
it is asking me to give password. This is working fine in the terminal. but I want to do it automatic through a shell script.

How can I be able to provide userid and password through shell script??

I was trying to achieve it by creating a public key and copy it to the destination .ssh file. but I dont have the permission to create any file in the destination server.

please any help in this regard...

How can you not have permission to create any files ?
When you log in with ssh as a user you go to that users home directory.
