You asked
"create a tmp grassdata/location/mapset in a script"

and creating the "grassdata/" is simply

mkdir grassdata

Then you can use the script indicating that directory or use Rainer's approach
to copy an existing empty location.

BTW: I only create temporary *mapsets* and work in the same location
on a cluster (in this case the location is valid for all jobs). Much easier...
