Source of the post The model being full of errors is that why SE would not create the files after loading?

No, I don't think. The errors in the model were related to normals (the direction of the surfaces), this would have made it seem strange and full of holes, but the .sm file would have been created. In addition, the model was very small. Without adapting the scale in SE it would have been less than 3 meters in length.

I use Blender. It's a very powerful program and it's free :-D there are many tutorials about blender in youtube, so it's easy enough to learn...

I don't think I can make a video. I'm Italian and my English pronunciation is terrible :-D Moreover I have some problems with my video capture software when I use blender (I don't know why).
I was thinking of doing a step by step guide with images, or a video in my language and then get it subtitled by some other willing user who doesn't need to consult google trad at every sentence :-D

Like Mosfet said, put the script in 'addons\catalogs\clusters'. If the folder does not exist you have to create it.
If you want to create galaxies or nebulae then the script for the galaxy belongs in 'addons\catalogs\galaxies' and the script for the nebula belongs in 'addons\catalogs\nebulae'.
However, you may also need models for galaxies and nebulae. These must be in the directories 'addons\models\galaxies' and 'addons\models\nebulae'. Model files have the extension '.cfg'.
If you need textures for galaxies and nebulae, they belong in 'addons\textures\galaxies' and 'addons\textures\nebulae'.

Do you have a problem with an invisible suffix '.txt' in the script?
If you have set in the options for the Windows Explorer, 'Hide extensions for known file types' then Notepad saves text files with the invisible ending '.txt'. So the name of your file may actually be 'ZGC1.sc.txt'.

Then maybe something is wrong with the path. Maybe a spelling mistake?
The script works correctly:

I'd say it's time to see your se.log file, it's in your SpaceEngine/system/ folder. Also, by saying "it didn't show up" it's not clear if in the object finder you have an "Object not found:" message, or you actually find the object but it's invisible, because there's a big difference.

ow, I only stopped at the first error. According your se.log you also have a cascade of multiple errors in mystars.sc and mysystem.sc.
I suggest you to search for "ERROR" in your se.log and check lines and scripts to which those errors are referring to.
Since SpaceEngine loads sequentially the scripts, a single syntax error in one of your scripts affects other scripts as well.
