To create a custom button for the related list, see Defining Custom Buttons and Links.

For example, to display a custom button on the Contacts related list of an account, define the custom button for contacts, not accounts.
Some related lists are not customizable because they link to data rather than store it. You can move your cursor over any related list section to see if it is customizable. Also, lookup fields are not available for display on their corresponding lookup related list. For example, the case lookup field on an account page layout is not available when editing the cases related list.
You can enable related list hover links so that record detail pages include links for each related list at the top of the page. Users can hover the mouse over a related list hover link to display the corresponding related list in an interactive overlay that allows users to quickly view and manage the related list items. Users can also click a related list hover link to jump to the content of the related list without scrolling down the page.
