how can i display custom coded php form in only one page in front end?

The best way to go would be to create a custom page template then create a page inside WordPress admin and select your newly created template for that page.

how can i make that page ristricted for registered user only?

Normally I would go with my plugin User Specific Content but since you are looking for a solution without a plugin then you can use the is_user_logged_in() function in your custom template page to check if the user is logged in or not.

how can i customize the login/registration form to add custom fields without using any plugin?

take a look at this nice tutorial

For a custom form without plugin. you can make use of existing hooks in wordpress like template_redirect.This hook get called before re-directing to the new page. you can refer to an in-depth article here

html form

<div class="employee">
<input type="hidden" name="show_msg">

<form name="customer_details" method="POST" required="required" class="input-hidden">
Your Name: <input type="text" id="name" name="customer_name">
Your Email: <input type="text" id="email" name="customer_email">
Company: <input type="text" id="company" name="company">
Sex: <input type="radio" name="customer_sex" value="male">Male <input type="radio" name="customer_sex" value="female">Female
<textarea id="post" name="experience" placeholder="Write something.." style="height:400px;width:100%"></textarea>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
<!--?php wp_nonce_field( 'wpshout-frontend-post','form-submit' ); ?-->
</form></div>

PHP Function

function wpshout_frontend_post() {
    wpshout_save_post_if_submitted();
}
add_action('template_redirect','wpshout_frontend_post', 2);

Adding a shortcode for your form is also an option: http://codex.wordpress.org/Shortcode_API
