There are only 3 possible ways:
1. beadm create beName - this will create BE beName from currently booted BE.
2. beadm create -e nonActiveBe beName - this will create BE beName from other BE called nonActiveBe
3. beadm create -e beName at snapshot beName - this will create BE beName from existing beName at snapshot snapshot
At least these are the same possibilities that beadm(1M) at Illumos/Solaris provides.
Hope that helps ;)
