Using Advanced Roadmap for Jira, you cannot create an EPIC equivalent level issue type. One can create new issue type(s) to serve as parent of EPIC. NOTE - One can even create multiple issue types and assign them to be a parent of EPIC or any level above EPIC.
What Atlassian Team mention is a upcoming function to allow us to rename EPIC to something else. However, it is not replacing the level where EPIC is being used as - It is simply a renaming functionality.
Hope this helps.
