FC- FC routing including LSAN zone concepts are covered in the FOS admin guide:
Found in the documents library of my.brocade.com starting on page 475. FC-FC routing and LSAN zones are advanced configuration work, and they should be done by someone with Brocade fabric design credentials, or significant study.
Also, there is a study course that I STRONGLY recommend prior to any routing configuration changes:
The entire task of performing FC-FC routing is beyond the scope of the community forum. But - get these two guides, and they will provide all the information you need to do IFL configuration and LSAN zone setup.

--->>>With DCX8510-8 and proper licenses (virtual fabric license....
there is nor VF License available neither required. VF is a Features available on all Gen4 / Gen5 and Gen6 platforms.
is here any technical reason why you want to create FCR and LSAN in order to Migrate from DCX to X6 ?
FCR on Gen6 Platforms with FOS 8.x is mandatory and required only by Old / unsupported in example 4Gb platforms.
to be honest ( saied with caution as I don't know you SAN environments ) I don't see any reason to made such a Migration complicated for such a simple migration.
