Is there a way to create additional customized issue types that have the same behavior as an Epic?

Hi Shirley,

Unfortunately not as Epic is hard-coded in to the system along with versions.

Hey Shirley,

                   If you are looking for Higher level, you can try Portfolio for JIRA plugin which has Initiatives/Epics/Story which when configured and pushed  into JIRA you can have Sub-Task feature as well 

If you are only looking in JIRA proper then the answer is "No" to your question.
