I don't understand what creating topics has to do with the admin panel. Please provide more details what you're doing manually, and what you're doing by SQL, and how each of those does or does not work as you expected.

i have a dump of an old installation of my forum, after first installation i want transfer categories, posts, topic and users into the new database with a sql script, users are loaded ok, topics, categories and posts are correctly into db but im not able to watch their into the forum...
--> this is from original dump inserted during installation INSERT INTO jforum_categories VALUES (1,'Category Test',1,0);
INSERT INTO jforum_categories VALUES (2,'ONLINE',2,0);
INSERT INTO jforum_categories VALUES (4,'MERCATO ',6,0);
INSERT INTO jforum_categories VALUES (5,'AREA UTENTI',4,0);
INSERT INTO jforum_categories VALUES (6,'AREA STAFF',8,0);
INSERT INTO jforum_categories VALUES (7,'STAGIONE ',7,0);
INSERT INTO jforum_categories VALUES (8,'AREA PRIVATA STAFF',9,0);
when i open admin panel i not able to watch this categories..
Maybe i had to add these lines into file mysql_data_dump.sql before start installation ?!

There seems to be more to creating categories than just an entry in that table. Note how you need to set access permissions when you create a new category through the admin panel? That information needs to be stored somewhere, and I suspect if it's missing things don't work. I don't know where it's stored, though.
