The easiest way is to create them in Outlook.  Expand the Public Folders tree in the folder pane in Outlook, and right-click the location that you want to create a PF.  Select New Folder, and then give it a name, and assign the permissions that you require.

I have seen in some environment they create PF in exchange server.
Is there any difference?

LeeDerbyshireCommented:
I don't think you can set the folder type (i.e. Appointment, Task, etc.) when you use Exchange System Manager.  Other than that, there is no difference in the folders.  The procedure is slightly different, that's all.  It's a similar kind of operation to Outlook, right-click the Folders/Public Folders object, select New Public Folder.  I think Outlook is actually better, since you get more Options to configure.

But I haven't find where can I create a PF in ESM.

It's in the bottom container in the tree view.  The one that says Folders (unless you have configured ESM to display Routing Groups, in which case you find it in there).  Open the Folders object, and it should say Public Folders.  Expand the heirarchy until you find the folder where you want to create a subfolder, and right-click it.  Choose New->Public Folder, and complete the property pages.
