This is a simple question. Does the Energy create both Fermion and Boson particles ? or just only the Fermion particles?

The equation $$E=mc^2,$$ or more generally $$E^2=(pc)^2 + (mc^2)^2,$$ is valid for any particle. More info on this energy-momentum relation can be found on its Wiki page. I suppose one can take the lack of "fermion" or "boson" on this page as indication of its general applicability.

E=mc^2 applie to all particles. The differences in masses is the basis of nuclear and even chemical energy. For example, a H atom is lighter than a proton and electron by the energy of ionisation.
