Spanish term or phrase: darse modos de
La palabra ‘modos’ implica creatividad, proviene del ‘darse modos de’ cuando se requiere resolver una situación de manera subjetiva, improvisada, al tanteo, es producto de la sedimentación histórica, no de la recuperación de forma puras precoloniales.

armar-se em


Explanation:
Penso que é uma opção, mas é muito coloquial ;)

Armar-se em chique, armar-se em carapau de corrida, "a armar ao queque", armar-se em esperto...

dar um jeito


Explanation:
En Brasil existe un término muy popular que es “dar um jeito”, su equivalente en español sería “dar un modo” o como decimos en el Ecuador: “darse modos”. Esto quiere decir que frente a la imposibilidad o el absurdo, siempre hay una forma de hacer aquello que queremos o necesitamos hacer.
