I've been trying to extend PDT to get type inference due to the way I instantiate objects
$object = ModuleRequest::getInstance('...')

I couldn't find any good tutorial on how exactly I'd go about doing that, until I found this post on vogella, which, along with this, would give me enough tips to get started.
I tried following it, but I got stuck right at the beginning: the add button on the extensions tab was disabled, as were all other button on all other tabs. Can anyone point out what I'm doing wrong or some sort of full tutorial on extending PDT for dummies?

It seems that almost anything does not have useful information in the page for your purpose.
Can you explain how did you open Plug-in Manifest Editor?

What exactly is the Plug-in Manifest Editor? I just decided to try my hand at extending PDT to achieve my goal and I'm not exactly familiar with the terms.
All I did was open the Plug-in Editor perspective, click the Plug-ins tab, navigate all the way to org.eclipse.php.core and double-click it. After that I can't do anything because every single action is disabled

I thought as much...
See Extending the Eclipse IDE - Plug-in Development Tutorial
Also Help->Help Contents->Platform Plug-in Developer Guide

FYI,
How to write a plugin for eclipse? - Stack Overflow
Plug-in development 101, Part 1: The fundamentals

(BTW, Extending PDT - Eclipsepedia is probably insufficient for beginners...)
