I don't know much about the syntax and semantic of the parenthetical phrases. I have made the following sentence:

Suppose that we have created a context named “Products” using two anchors, “Results” as the beginning and “PageNavigationBar” as the ending anchors and "Between" as its scope.

named “Products”, “Results” as the beginning and “PageNavigationBar” as the ending anchors and "Between" as its scope are the parenthetical phrases.

I would like to get sure I used it in natural and correct way.

It's not for proofreading, its just an example of how parenthetical phrases are created. If there are other patterns, I would like to know them.

A quick fix for your sentence: Suppose that we have created a context named “Products” using two anchors (“Results” as the beginning and “PageNavigationBar” as the ending anchors) and "Between" as its scope. Using two commas in the place of the parentheses is okay too. However, I'd recommend using and its scope named "Between" instead of and "Between" as its scope for the parallelism (a context name "Products", and its scope named "Between"). – Damkerng T.

Suppose that we have created a context named “Products” using two anchors, “Results” as the beginning and “PageNavigationBar” as the ending anchors and "Between" as its scope.

The sentence would benefit from simplification.

Suppose that we have created a context using a starting anchor, "Results", and an ending anchor, "PageNavigationBar". Let's call the context "Products" and its scope "Between".
