If I want call cpp class constructer without new method, is there a way to do that ?

If what you really want is to actually allocate using C++ new operator from D, then that is very problematic and not portable even across compilers on same OS.

If C++ side has poor design around this specific issue and expects passed object to be delete'd (using the C++ delete operator) later then you are in trouble. In that case you have to make simple wrapper on C++ side to be able to call new/delete from D.

If all you want is to allocate memory for object(existing buffer, malloc, etc..) and place it there you can use emplace function and call ctor later (see below) https://dlang.org/phobos/core_lifetime.html#.emplace , or there was one in "object" module IIRC

Otherwise it is also possible to just call constructors manually using its internal name
   myObj.__ctor(..params..) / this.__ctor(...)

(destructors also possible, see __dtor/__xdtor. hint: __dtor is probably not what you want, read the docs first)

And finally to just allocate with GC using D new operator
   auto myObj = new MyClass(...);

Just make sure that this object won't be delete'd from C++


and also if the cpp api accept a delegate as parameter, how to create one from d and pass to cpp ?

Probably not possible. There are no delegates in C++, instead it has pointers to member functions and limited lambdas, and there is no analogs in D. You can try to craft it somehow to be ABI compatible, but probably easier to just make simple wrapper on C++ side. IIRC member pointers is just pointer, and you provide 'this' context on call, while in D delegate is 2 pointers - context AND function
