The question is why you want software RAID. It's certainly slower than hardware based RAID on frames itself.

Can you check with below command
swlist -l fileset | grep -i mirror

11.23 vxvm configuration permits you to mirror only the rootvg without additional software install.
For LVM configurations the software is called mirror/ux, and you need to pay for it, get a codeword and then enter the codeword into the swinstall interface to do the install.
The software includes a kernel module and most likely requires a reboot.

For LVM Mirroring via Mirror/UX, it depends on the HP-UX Operating Environment you have.
If you have the HP-UX Base OE, then NO you do not get Mirror/UX.
If you have a higher level OE, like Enterprise OE, or Mission Critical OE, then YES you get Mirror/UX included.
