Hi Emir,   
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.   

To display ejGrid Colums Field TextArea and edittingType the same way you have to use “edittemplate” property of the grid column. The following sample displays text area in editing state. Please find the code example.  

columns: [   
                        { field: "OrderID", isPrimaryKey: true, headerText: "Order ID", textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right, validationRules: { required: true, number: true }, width: 90 },   
                            field: "CustomerID", headerText: 'Customer ID',   
                            editTemplate: {   
                                create: function () {   
                                    return "<textarea></textarea>";//initialize the control   
                                read: function (args) {   
                                    return args.val();//read the value at the time of save   
                                write: function (args) {   
                                    $("textarea").css("width","100%").val(args.rowdata.CustomerID);//assign the value to the control   
                            }, width: 170   
                        { field: "EmployeeID", headerText: 'Employee ID', width: 150 },

For your reference, we have created a JS playground sample.
