I dont clearly understand your question.

what you have to undestand first is that tmfs is a mixture of swap area and the /tmp directory if you want to release this area
you have to use the comand swap -d < swap defice or file> and
remove the entry form the /etc/vfstab and mount /tmp partition as a normal ufs file sistem. note that solaris 2.x can work with out swap area if there is memory enough.

you can place a normal swap file sistem in another partition
by issuing a swap -a <device name>

if you want that it is added at boot you have to modyfy the
/etc/vfstab
