You can do this by handling the DrawCell event of the grid and set e.Cancel to true to customize your drawing in a grid cell. Below is a code snippet that show this task.
void gridControl1_DrawCell(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridDrawCellEventArgs e)
if (e.ColIndex == 2 && e.RowIndex > 0)
e.Cancel = true;
e.Style.TextMargins.Left = e.Bounds.Width / 2;
e.Renderer.Draw(e.Graphics, e.Bounds, e.RowIndex, e.ColIndex, e.Style);
Rectangle rect = e.Bounds;
rect.Width = e.Bounds.Width /2;
e.Graphics.DrawString(e.Style.Description, e.Style.GdipFont, new SolidBrush(e.Style.TextColor), rect);

Creating Custom Control :
If you want to host this control in a single grid cell, then you can do this by setting the celltype of the cell to be a control and then set the control that you want the cell to be associated with. Below is the code.
this.gridControl1[2,2].CellType = "Control";
this.gridControl1[2,2].Control = userControl1;
If you want to have this control in several cells, then you will have to create a custom celltype deriving the control. It requires a model class and a renderer class. The model class handles the serialization requirements for the control and creates the renderer class. The renderer class handles the UI requirements of the cell.
Please refer the DerivedCellControlTutorial sample in the browser samples for more details.
