In the First-image, I fill the hole, then by default its looks triangulated

enter image description here

In the second image, now I want to make this into quads. So I have to do Tries to quad via Alt J lets me do this.

In the last image it did not work completely, some tries are still tries. I tried to increase or decrease the angle property. But No solution found.

Circles and Quads are always a strange mix.

You can use Grid Fill to get quads.

Go to CtrlF or Mesh->Faces->Grid Fill on the menu. Or just press the space bar and type Grid Fill.

Pressing F6 will bring out the different options for the tool (or you can set them on the Grid Fill tab that appears on the Left Side of the screen by pressing T)

enter image description here

Other option to deal with edges on a cylinder is to select the edge, extrude (E) and scale to bring the edges in, then extrude again and press Esc without moving the mouse. Then just merge the edges at the center AltM into a pole. This oPtion will give you some triangles, but in a manageable topology.

enter image description here

Other way to deal with the issue is selecting the edge and using Fill F. That will create a N-gon.

Then you can use inset (I). To fill the center you can choose then between an N-gon (Using fill again) or triangles with a common pole.
