Is there any way to change Eth type to MPLS protocol?

I am using Net+OS 7.5 for ME 9210.
I am trying to connect a rotor which works with MPLS protocol. Is there any way that I can receive this type of protocol and send it out? I look at bypass functions but it is confusing!

The IP layer (layer 3) and the ethernet layer (layer 2) are tied together fairly closely. Ethernet bypass was added to give application writers the ability to get in between those layers (which from what I saw on the web is where MPLS would like to reside) and look at "raw" ethernet packets. I know of no other methods for doing so.
