If you want ot add your own extended directives to the MRTG .cfg files, the official way to do it is to use a prefix of <your-application-name>*.  So, for example, the routers2 package uses new directives like:

routers.cgi*Graph[xxxx]: yyyyyyy
routers.cgi*Options[xxxx]: yyyyy
routers.cgi*Icon: xxxxxxx

and so on.  If a directive contains an asterisk (*) then MRTG assumes it is a extension and ignores it rather than giving an error.  Of course, you will need to write your own application that handles these new additions.

Is it possible to add new tags in config file for mrtg ?
