This sounds like a bad idea. The parameter can be saved as a scalar or a local macro, but using a variable for
the same number again and again is usually unnecessary.
Still, there might be a good idea, or you might insist, so if so try
gen rho = _b[/rho]
but consider also
scalar rho = _b[/rho]

After non linear estimaition which estimates parameters rho and sigma of the following form*
nl (z=h1*{rho}+h2*{rho}^2+h3*{sigma2}), in(rho 0.5 sigma2 1) iterate(200)
I want to generate a variable rho that takes the value of the estimated parameter {rho}
gen rho=???
