Actually there are two questions here.

  1. Creating personal customized new set of old brushes, where I want to put different brushes from different sets (like 2 from assorted, 2 from basic etc.) in one set.
  2. Creating personal customized set of new brushes, how can I create my own brushes?

This is how to create new customized brush set from old brushes :

go to Edit > Preset Manager > select brush from dropdown first load all the brushes which you want to use in your set (like all from assorted,all from basic ) You'll see all the brush now select one by one which you want in your brush set, select brushes (ctrl+click for multi) > save this set > again go to preset manager > load set which you have saved just now.
