In order to start spawning items or bosses, you’ll need to use the code spawn [item] [quantity] [level]. Importantly, using these can cause in-game issues, so use them at your own risk.

A list of all the spawnable items has been compiled by Reddit user Demogrim, but the most important thing to note here is about spawning Haldor, the Trader.
If cheats are used to spawn the mysterious little gnome, he will not be able to be removed, meaning his location is no longer randomized. He also floats a little bit above the ground, so there’s that, too.
