Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Before create a new question, you should see if this has not been created previously. This will be closed as a duplicate soon. But have in mind that for the next time.. Take a look at the duplicated post: How to create a manpage? – Lucio Mar 7 '13 at 0:18

Google is your friend

This lays out in detail what is required. You will need to use sudo to create the pages. Use the built in editor like vim
