I want to add the wall to my frame structure, then I build the wall with elastic shell element. Now, I want to set the shell fixed with the column and beam around it, how to accomplish it?

Once you've designed your shell elements you can merge them with the frame structure. Once the merge is done, please check the assignements (elements, conditions...). During the meshing definition you can use the "edge seed " command to refine the mesh. This process is avaliable yust in case of using elements with same NDM and NDF, otherwise you have to use interactions and apply the equal dof condition.
