Sorry, but I'm new to NetApp. Basically I have 48 SATA disks that are marked as spares on controllerA but are not assigned to any aggregate. I would like to use these disks to create a new aggregate on controllerB but I am not exactly sure how to accomplish this. Any help/guidence would be appreciated....

Yes. You first unassign them on current owner (disk assign -s unowned). It has to be done for each disk separately. Then just assign them on the partner.
Be sure to disable disk.auto_assign when doing it, otherwise disks may be magically assigned back
