I was playing a chord in the scale of C major with the notes being: C E G B F A. The name I can think of is C major 7 add 11 add 13.but I'm not sure if I can name such thing with two "added" pronunciation.What's the correct name of this chord? & why it should be named so?

Another name for that group is
FMaj9#11
1/F, 3/A, 5/C, 7/E, 9/G, #11/B

I assume it's still good to use.

From an old Mel Bay book, and ChordwarePA chord finder.

Also it can't be a F maj 9 as F major scale has a flat B instead of B as 9th

That sounds logical.So in a sense you can't add two "add" terms to name a chords

Or just don't need to. I don't know. I've haven't seen two add terms used before. Or if I do see it, I'd like to assume it was given to an unnamed note cluster.

That's exactly what I would call it. It's a 13th with a missing extended note - it's not uncommon in jazz to miss notes from chords, I would just say which one is missing.

Wouldn't G be the 9th?

Sorry my mistake :P.Yes G is the 9th.What I meant to say is that chord can't only be a F major 9 chord as 9 chord has 5 notes.F major 9/C means F major chord with C as a bass.But then you would be missing one note in the chord.That would be B.So it has be more extended but note mere F major 9

Well I've never seen written "missing" in a chord name that's for sure
