There are no way that a webmaster can create there own sitelinks within the Google search results. Google automatically creates sitelinks over time base upon the website and information it has contained over the time the Google bot has search you site.

This is what Google States

"We only show sitelinks for results when we think they'll be useful to
the user. If the structure of your site doesn't allow our algorithms to
find good sitelinks, or we don't think that the sitelinks for your site
are relevant for the user's query, we won't show them".

I hope this has helped.

Google seems to use the first level links on a website for the Sitelinks. That means that all links that are not present on the homepage of your site won't be used as Sitelinks.

The links should be descriptive text links or image links with a descriptive IMG ALT attribute. JavaScript or Flash links are not considered for Sitelinks. Google uses 2 to 8 links for the Sitelinks of a website. Unfortunately, it's unclear how Google assigns the number of links to each website.

The text that is used for the Sitelinks can be the text that are used for the link (anchor text) on the homepage or the title of the linked page. It seems that Google prefers links that appear at the top of a web page.
