Can we make any port an ISL/E port  in brocade witch  ?If yes then what are the commands required?
How can we figure out in a switch that a particular port is a ISL/E port when we do not have switches connected by ISLs  (standalone switch)
What is a command to see whether ISL license is there or not?

No commands are needed. The switch auto-detects the topography. It'll detect that another switch has been connected on that port and will become an ISL once you tell it that it's OK to merge the fabrics and form an ISL.

If you are using the Brocade web GUI, you can see what the ports are from the landing page by clicking on them. You can also see the installed licenses by looking at the Properties of the switch.
