Hello,

I don't know how to create a mesh in Fluent 12

Do I have to get GAMBIT for this, or ICEM?

Isn't ICEM is a part of Fluent 12?

For creating a valid Fluent 12 mesh you can use any mesh generator that is capable to export the mesh in Fluent format:

GAMBIT
ICEM
GridGen
....

In the end it is a question of preference, some people for e.g. consider GAMBIT to a be a clumsy mesh generator. I've used GAMBIT and GridGen meshes successfully in the past, but I've always found that GAMBIT is easier (just a personal opinion).

(I don't think ICEM is part of Fluent 12 distribution).
