Dear Fabio,
did you resolve this problem?

After getting the error, what does the following return?

  M-x locate-library RET essd-sp6

How did you install ess-5.2.12?  My guess is that if you have
ess-5.2.3 still hanging around, ESS may be finding the version of
essd-sp6.el (where ess-s-versions-create is defined, but probably not
in version 5.2.3) from the 5.2.3 directory tree.  Try moving the 5.2.3
out of the way, and swapping in the 5.2.12 tree.
