Usually to setup a tunnel one uses the command "ipsec start" and "ipsec up tunnel_name"
How do I install strongswan-5.7.2 so that I can use the command "strongswan start" and "strongswan up tunnel_name" to setup tunnel ??

That is a RHEL thing. On RHEL like distros (Fedora, CentOS, RHEL), the ipsec script was renamed strongswan. You'd need to do that on your installations manually, if you want that. It's not a feature or anything done by strongSwan or its source code.

Actually, you can use
--with-ipsec-script to change the name of the script (changes some other files too, like the legacy systemd unit, the command for leftfirewall or the man pages).
