I'm very sad and annoying by set because If I get set? everybody checks and if my opponents got set? he wins a huge pot. plus if i got set and make huge pot, my opponent shows top sets or straight

so how can i play set? and reading set is possible in online 0.02/0.05?

Set over set is pretty rare, so I usually just consider it a cooler when it happens, but it really depends on reads/stats and the action in the hand.
I'd need to see a real hand history to see if you made a mistake, but the general rule for 2NL/5NL is to never fold a flopped set 100bb deep, on the flop at least. However, if the board turns really ugly, with 4 cards to a straight and/or 3 cards to a flush, then you should certainly be able to get away from a set.

Set over Set one of ya going broke most the time, it is the hardest hand to get away from and in most cases the hardest hand to see your opponent having.
