I am new to stackexchange community (not exactly new, but know very less about it), so I just wanted to know if anyone can create a chat room? If yes, then how?

know if anyone can create a chat room

Not everybody can. In order to create a chat room, you need to have 100 reputation. Please see: What is reputation? and Privileges.

If yes, then how?

If you can create one, it is as simple as going to chat (click on the Stack Exchange logo at the top-right, then chat), scrolling to the bottom of the page, and clicking the orange "create a new room" button.
