How to put one JLabel & one JTextField per line with the FlowLayout Manager?
Nowall JLabel & JTextField components are added on the same line with FlowLayout Manager.
i.e. the red line insertion cursor stay on the same line but do not move to the next line even though I press the <Enter> key.

That isn't how FlowLayout works. FlowLayout lays out widgets left to right until the line is filled and then it wraps to the next line.
There is no concept of an <Enter> key to end a line early and jump to the next line.
If you want a grid, I would suggest that you use GridLayout or GridBagLayout (or even better JGFL or MigLayout).
