Environment:
z/os DB2
Answer:
I am not aware of any way to rebuild part of a missing SMP/E environment from the other parts. 
If you had a full backup of all the SMP/E datasets you could restore the datasets. 
You would have to restore all the SMP/E datasets so that the environment stayed synchronized. 

The other issue is when the backups if any were taken. 
You do not want your SMP/E environment out of sync with your Target Datasets 
e.g loadlib parmlib etc etc. 
This can cause all sorts of problem if SMP/E does not think a ptf is applied but actually it is applied. 

As SMP/E is an IBM product i would suggest you verify what i have said with them also.
