Just create it manually, for example in Windows using the Explorer.

I am afraid that should be basic knowledge. Which operating system do you have?

Right click, hover over "new", press "new folder" and name the newly created folder to the correct name :)

I think you only need to create a folder called "map" in the simutrans directory and put the ppm files in that one. Have not done it myself, only looking at the tutorial Combuijs linked to. The Allmaps in that folder I dont know what is supposed to do, maybe you can place the maps that you have but dont play at the moment there so the list of maps dont get all clogged up?
