I am trying to create my resume using moderncv and Moderntimeline. Based on answer I added new function to have months on a timeline:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper, sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{classic}
\moderncvcolor{blue} 
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[scale=0.91]{geometry}    % Width of the entire CV
\setlength{\hintscolumnwidth}{4.1cm} % Width of the timeline on your left
\usepackage{pdfpages/pdfpages}
\usepackage{moderntimeline/moderntimeline}
\usepackage{xpatch/xpatch}
\usepackage{color, graphicx}
\usepackage{comment}

  1. I have problems with beginning dates. I don't know how move them right on timeline.\hspace{5.8cm} does not work for them and part of beginning dates are cutting off
  2. I need to create separate timeline e.g. \tlmaxdates{2007}{2012}?

I am not quite sure whether this is what you're after (and it may break some other formatting of the moderncv package).

It seems to be possible to just re-set \tlmaxdates in the body of the document. So, if you want to create another time line with different minimum and maximum years, just place this macro before you call \tllabelcventryn.

As for the alignment of the labels with the dates, I would suggest, that the start date is left aligned and the end date is right aligned. This way, you reduce the danger that one of the labels reaches over the timeline. Of course, if the timeline is very short, it may look a bit strange.

Consider the following code (I moved the first call of \tlmaxdates to demonstrate that you can call it multiple times inside the body. I also added \name, because there will be an error due to undefined macros otherwise. Finally, I removed some of the code that is not necessary for this example):

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper, sans]{moderncv}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[scale=0.91]{geometry}    % Width of the entire CV
\usepackage{moderntimeline}

\moderncvstyle{classic}
\moderncvcolor{blue} 
\setlength{\hintscolumnwidth}{4.1cm} % Width of the timeline on your left

The output is like this (you can see that the third timeline has adjusted minima and maxima):
