I know the reaction is KCl + HNO3 gives KNO3 + HCl; but please let me know what are the rxn temperature, more about the reaction parameters etc.

If you have to ask the question, should you be messing around with this chemistry ?

Why would I mess around with the chemistry.
KNO3 has got a significant use for fertilizer industry.
Get it wrong, you could demolish a fair area.

What do you mean? It's just an oxidize, not an explosive.

As others point out, its a precursor for explosive chemistries.

And a lot of other less harmless uses!

I love the smell of napalm in the morning.....
It also blows up for no good reason.
