Create and Edit buttons are automaticly added to tree views by orm...

To add something there is possible, but for that you should be realy experienced and have good extensive knowledge of odoo framework...

What you can easyly add to tree views is a server action (visible under menuitem More, Print etc...)

On the other hand.. adding a button to form view and pop up new form (in most cases it is called "wizard")

explained here for v8: http://odoo-80.readthedocs.org/en/latest/howtos/backend.html#wizards
for older versions try searching this form or ask google how to create wizard...
