You cannot make creation date editable.  that would allow changing history,

you can write a a java Participant server side extension to capture this value and put it into another field that is modifiable.

see https://jazz.net/library/article/1000 for education and practice projects for creating this kind of extension.
Also Ralph has a good Blog that has lots of samples of thigs, I think there is one that works like this
