Purpose is to save time, I've been reading about Trailforce - templates created from one org for different customizable orgs (if I understand it right, but that seems like a complicated way with creating/linking all the TMO,TSO,LMO,LMA)... Is there a different solution to my question ?
Are you an end-user (customer) of Salesforce or an ISV?– identigralAug 17, 2022 at 20:45
...and hot off the presses, you can clone some sandboxes in Winter '23: help.salesforce.com/s/…– identigralAug 18, 2022 at 0:51

It depends on the type of org you're creating. For Developer Edition and Scratch Orgs, you always start fresh from a default template. For Sandboxes, you can use SandboxInfo to create a Sandbox from any other Sandbox or the Production Org that is attached to the Sandbox to be created. SFDX can do this for you when you use
force:org:create. The Trialforce templates are only for orgs that will be become standalone subscriber orgs if the client subscribes beyond the trial period.
Thanks for your answer, but what would be option for me, if the purpose was to get around the expiration date on Partner Developer Org ?– jur1s77Sep 19, 2022 at 8:59
@TomášJurina All non-paid orgs have an expiration by default. You can make the org exempt from deletion, such as registering a namespace or making the org a Dev Hub org.– sfdcfoxSep 19, 2022 at 14:26
