How do you create Names, Readers, Authors fields in LotusScript?

You can use the "specialType" field of the NotesItem type:
  Dim variableName As New NotesItem( notesDocument, name$, value [,specialType%])

For example,
Dim TAuthor As New NotesItem(doc, "Author",  Auths, AUTHORS)
 TAuthor.IsSummary = True

will create a TAuthor field which is an author names field.
