Light can be created with command createVehicleLocal with special vehicle class "#lightpoint"
for example: _light = "#lightpoint" createVehicleLocal pos; _light setLightBrightness 1.0; _light setLightAmbient [0.0, 1.0, 0.0]; _light setLightColor [0.0, 1.0, 0.0]; _light lightAttachObject [_object, [0,0,0]];

To clarify:
setLightAmbient - Terrain and surrounding objects are bathed in this colour.
setLightColor - Controls the "haze" seen around the lightsource (ex flares).

1. In ArmA3 ver 1.14 setLightColor will also change the color of the flare when setLightUseFlare, setLightFlareSize and setLightFlareMaxDistance were used on the same light source. For example: _light setLightUseFlare true; _light setLightFlareSize 2; _light setLightFlareMaxDistance 60; _light setLightColor [1, 1, 1];
2. When both setLightAmbient and setLightColor were [0,0,0], there won’t be any visual presentation on the light source.
