You mean an AI plane that move in water? Use the "SanJuan" sample mission to learn how to do it. They use an AI Beaver to start and land on water.

You mean how to create an amphibian aircraft? Just take a look at the contact point section in the beaver' aircraft.cfg and read the SDK regarding contact points. It's pretty easy. ;)
 
is there a way to edit already made planes
i want my pmdg 737 to be able to float
how many contact points should i make and where do i place them ?

I guess I'm a little late to this, but posting in the off chance that you or other's haven't found a solution yet..

Sure. It's all in the aircraft.cfg. Here's a very simple way to do it using Model Converter X:

You would just need to add some float contact points to the fuselage and wings. You may be able to get by with one at each end of the fuselage and one on each wing.

A float contact point is: (Whereas "x" is the next number in the sequence of points.
Code:
point.x = 4
