In admin or in the catalog?
What fields you like to add?
And where exactly?

We have a data available field. Is it not usable for you?

You're right i noticed now there is a filed date_added its usefull, thank you. I still need change some forms, for example i wanna change image upload method. I wanna upload image after add product and rename image with productname. Current method very hard to choose image after upload if there is 10,000 images.

You can upload image anytime. You just can't select the image when you add new product because it does not exist.
I change the image name to the same as the product name before uploading for the same reason.
If you're asking can image upload be added in product, yes it could be, but there are security problems with doing that.
