Ok, I give it a try:

How can I transform ocean into swamp?

First, you need an engineer. A settler is not sufficient. Put it on a boat,
e.g. a galleon or a transport. It will auto-sentry then. Move the boat on
the tile you wish to transform. Note, that three adjacent tiles to this tile
must be land already.

Sentry the boat. Then click on the ship unit, and awake the engineer, not the
ship! Then press "O" to start the transform work. This will take 36 turns.
It is perfectly possible to use multiple engineers on 1 or more transport
units, in order to accelerate the task. But it is a good idea to accompany
these units with a cruiser or battleship to give them defense.
