Has anyone ever tried Mounding Sand, or putting A few layers of Foamboard under there liner to build a shallower section to their above-ground pool.

I want to create a 6" rise but worry about the added stress to the frame or liner.

Welcome to TFP :)

Doughboy pools have stretchable liners that you can put a deep end in there above ground pools.. I have not seen anyone attempt a shorter pool in above ground... I am by no means saying it can or cannot be done, :)
