Own Module: Custom Form Field, Multiple Table Rate Extension

Hi guys,

I’m trying to code a shipping extension for Magento, something like the “Table Rate” one, but with multiple types of service. I got to a relatively good point for now, but I have trouble in the backend. What I’m trying to do is to resemble the function that the original Code does - let you download a .CSV file where you can put the data, and then upload it again to the database.
I found out that in
we find the code that puts the “Export” button in the backend, with the corresponding code which creates the link to the download. Now, this is hard-coded to point to a function specific to “tablerate”.
I wonder if there is a way to add my own “Export” button, specific to my extension (thus pointing to my own download procedure). Somebody knows if I can put it somewhere within my extension’s directory?
Of course there are a few more files, for example app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/controllers/System/ConfigController.php and quite a few more.

I’d be very grateful for any hint or input.

Cheers from Italy
