Hi Jie,
First problem:

# put this just after the jpeg device is opened # to leave extra space on the right
par(mar=c(5,4,4,4)
# then just before "dev.off"
axis(4,...)

Second problem:

# don't display the default x axis
plot(avegrp,type='l',lty=1,col='black',lwd=4,   xlab=xxlab,ylab=yylab,xaxt="n")
# then display your custom axis
