We want to be able to launch the X appian instance from the Y so that the details can be passed by the system.

Generally this is just what subprocesses are for. When you call a process as a subprocess from another process, you just pass in the parameters, any start form is ignored.
Is the question that you want to launch a start form on another Appian instance?
The only way to do this would be an API request that would return you a URL to a Task Form. It would be 2 steps though (1 for the button and then you would have to click on the URL).
We have two different appian instance, We have a process to submit a request in A appian instance and B has some details. now user is manually opening to instance and filling out the details from B, to avoid manual work. we need to trigger the process by passing parameters from instance B.

For some reason I assumed OP was referring to process instances, but good point. More detail definitely required here.
Thanks for clarifying - so for separate environments you'll need to refer to Mathieu's answer below - using API connections between environments is pretty easy. I even set up an API connector to send stuff (just for testing reasons) between my corp dev environment and my Community Edition site.
Yes I tried this approach to embed the task in target interface am using webcontent field it says "abc.appiancloud.com refused to connect" in documentation it says "Internal Appian interfaces and Appian URLs are not supported."
Don't embed the url, they actually need to click on the link and redirect to the other application.
Am tried <appian-action processModelUuid=""0002e7ee-dc54-8000-8538-7f0000014e7a""></appian-action> in webapi using safelink am able to launch the process, is there a way i can pass parameters to it?
I have no idea what you are doing here !?!
The way it is meant to be implemented is, by creating a web API on one environment, and call that API from the other. Then you can easily pass anything you want.
