You could use a dado blade on a (circular) table saw. Example:

But you're asking how to do this on the cheap, and I'm not sure you have
a table saw. What kind of tools do you have?
The window frames are not necessarily wood channels that allow the sash to
ride in. The window frames sometimes have a groove in the center and the
molding in it is called parting mold. It is still available in a good lumber
yard. The other moldings have names that I don't recall, but can be
purchased or made. I know one of the moldings is called screen mold. If you
take an old frame apart, you should be able to make a replacement. A number
of years ago, I repaired an old house that required rebuilding the frames.
If you have good sash, it should be easy. Most of the grooves and dadoes can
be done with a router and the proper moldings put in.
