How can I select a hidden object to rotate , remove or resize which is hidden inside another bigger object ("hidden" means a smaller object is inside another bigger object) ? Clicking with the right mouse button on the bigger object may help but that is not an obvious approach as I don't know exactly at which position the tiny object is located.Moreover , What about a tiny object inside a super big object ? (Like a luggage in an airplane model)

In this case, and in the case where you have a large scene with many objects, selection is done more easily using the Outliner.

There are a couple of ways I use to deal with this situation in my own workflow. In some cases I select one or the other of the objects, either the outer or inner, and move it to a different layer, make the edits, and then move the item originally moved back to the other layer. In other cases, I'll use the hide facility in Blender (H key) to make the outer object invisible, and when I am done making edits, I'll unhide the hidden object using the ALT-H key combination.

As commoner suggested in another answer, sometimes I use the oulener to make the selection.
