You can go to SAM to create a new user account

#sam -> Account for users and group -> Users -> Action (add user)

hope this help

Re: Create new user account

user can be created using the useradd command. You have to specify the user (login) name at the
command line to create a new user. For example, the following command creates a new user trisno and
creates the home directory for the user as /home/trisno. It also copies startup files from the /etc/skel
directory to the home directory.
useradd -m trisno
The -m option is used to create the home directory and copy startup files into this directory.

u can limit the account using sudo utility.

yes,In IBM AIX the commands are same

You can do a man on "useradd" or just use SAM. As far as sftp just make there shell /bin/false.
