Simply Calenders does not support creation of non-Gregorian calendars.
The Hebrew calendar
is a mixed solar/lunar calendar with years coinciding with the solar year whilst months are lunar. A year varies between 353 and 385 days and begins on the day of the new moon. The year may have 12 or 13 months. Years are counted since "Anno Mundi", the creation of the world, which is assumed to have occurred in 3761BC.
The Islam calendar
is a pure lunar calendar with 12 lunar months. Months begin with the sighting of the new moon. The year is consistently shorter than the solar year and hence the Islam year shifts with respect to the Gregorian calendar. Years are counted since Hijra (Mohamed's flight to Medina) which is said to have occurred in 622 AD [2000AD was 1420/1421AH]
The Persian Calendar
is a solar calendar which has 12 months of 30 days with 5/6 additional days. It begins on March 21.
The Chinese Calendar
is one of the oldest calendars. It was allegedly invented by Emperor Huangdi in 2637 BC. It is a combined solar/lunar calendar with similarities to the Hebrew in having 12/13 lunar months and a variable length year.
The Budhist Era
year is 543 years ahead of the Gregorian year ie 2000AD was 2543 BE
