The correct location to copy your actions sets is to:
//Library/Application Support /Adobe/Photoshop Elements/9.0/Locale/en_US/Workflow Panels/actions

Actions cannot be created in Photoshop Elements, but they can be created in Photoshop and exported for use in Photoshop Elements (as long as the features used in the action are supported by Photoshop Elements).
