I have two vectors f(t) and g(t) and I want to plot them in one graph using plotyy. But I also want to do some other things like changing the marker style of each curve and also changing the span of the axes. I have tried using xlim but it only affects one of the x axes, not both.

you need to use the handles for this so
[hAx,hLine1,hLine2] = plotyy(x,y1,x,y2);
this is also very well explained in the documentation of plotyy
doc plotyy

indeed, the same as you have tried to use xlim, but now with explicitly specifying to which axes the xlim needs to be applied

Another question please, I also want my plot to be of only marker-defined, meaning the data points are marked with certain marker type without connecting line. I have added
The marker appears as desired but the connecting line between data points still exist. How can I remove the line?

this is clearly explained in the documentation of plot
