Is the word"with" in the sentence " Who is that girl with a red hat" right? But I think "with" should be replaced by " in". Am I right? Could you tell me the different use between the two word ?

You don't need to change this. The use of 'with' in the question "Who is that girl with a red hat?" is correct and common. It would be more natural, though, to say "Who is that girl with the red hat?", as the hat which she is wearing is a specific one. There is no difference between 'in' and 'with' in this question - the meaning is the same.

"With a hat" may be the situation that she carrying a hat in her hand.

"with a red hat" is fine as a general saying.You may also say "in" in this situation or to be more specific either "wearing a read hat" or "carrying a red hat".
