For ISL you need a Fabric License, no other License is requiered.
Try "licensehow" command to verify if Fabric License is installed.

ISL is sipmle, you need just to Set for each Switch a unipue Domain ID,and Check for Compatibility beetwen the loaded Fabric OS.
For details about Compatibility see FOS Release Notes.

you can not do ISL trunking with the Fabric license.
With the Fabric licenses on both the SWs, you can connect ISLs only. But for ISL Trunking you need trunking licenses on both the SWs .
have you checked both the SWs, that you have fabric licenses? if yes, then you can merge the SWs and you can connect ISLs. pls connect more than 1 ISL for redundancy, pls find the attached doc SAN migration guide for merging the SWs.

as requested earlier pls find ISl doc, though this is a doc on older sws, you can understand the trunking part. I think this will help you a lot.
