Hello. At the right top of the page there is a mail button with a picture of a letter.


My question: how to add in my custom module a similar button with image at this bar.

You need to add it when the instance.web.UserMenu's do_update is executed in the javacript UI to a div which has "oe_systray" class.  Basically build a new widget and then include it there.  The ComposeMessageTopButton is included in odoo/addons/mail/static/src/js/mail.js.  You can study the mechanism from that file.
