How can a spacecraft reach a very far planet technically with all randomly moving objects , solar wind and attraction force along its way?

None of those factors are random. All objects and gravitational forces are known and taken into account in the mathematical calculations of the craft's trajectory.

Well, the closest exo planet is 4.2 light years away, just plot a launch window that avoids orbiting asteroids and go.
What solar wind effect there would be, simple corrections to steer a course.

By using known objects (e.g. selected stars) to find its position and doing minor course corrections (e.g . fire engines or even just release compressed gas) throughout the journey.

By using engineering.

same as a ship - it plots a course, taking into consideration whats going on around it

by the use of computers that calculate all the possible forces on the craft second by second, and calculate corrections as needed.
And objects in space do not move randomly, they follow paths dictated by laws of motion and gravity. Solar wind is a very minor force.
