I exorcise thee, Serpent, and I command thee to appear forthwith under a beautiful and well-favoured human form of soul and body. What does this mean in Latin

The line seems to come from the 'Grimoire of Pope Honorius', an 18th century book of magic originally written in French. It may well not go back to a medieval Latin version.
It seems very unlikely that someone will translate the whole spell for you, but perhaps you might be interested in this online version of the 'Sworn Book of Honorius', which has spells in Latin with an English translation? It is at least as old as the 14th century, although I wouldn't like to guarantee that it would be any more effective at conjuring the devil.
