Hi Mai,

it is possible to modify/add toolbars (or menus) per Tools > Customization. See 
[1] for the documentation of this feature. And you can also apply it to a 
specific document by changing the "Scope".
Good place to ask specific questions is [2] or the user mailing lists [3]. This 
one is intended for developers- and from what you ask I guess you don't plan to 
change the source code.
