There currently is no way to add a DS without doing quite some work.
I can see four ways to approach your problem.  I present them in the
order which I think are best to worst:

1: rethink your collecting/updating script.  I find it hard to believe
   you cannot alter it so that in one pass it generates multiple rrdtool
   update lines, one DS per RRD would be best.
2: search the internet for a script that adds a DS.  There will be one
   or two of such scripts already made.
3: get familiair with the rrdtool internals and extend the program so
   that add_ds (or similar) is a valid function.
4: write a script that works on the xml output of "rrdtool dump", then
   use "rrdtool restore".  Basically this is recreating one of the
   scripts I mentioned in (2).
