Question Creating add in buttons in Outlook 2007 using VSTO

I have 2 VBA macro codes that runs well in Outlook 2007.
1.Search and replace text by clicking a button in Compose Mail Window

2.Search and replace text by clicking a button in Inbox Message Window
As of now I have the macros working and I need to create an application file to automatically install the buttons in the toolbar window for other users, and whenever clicked on to the button in the window, it should run the macro.

As far as I know,I need to use Visual Studio to create an add in and then I need to program it accordingly to perform the operation.

I have seen some sample add ins that create buttons in the main Outlook 2007 window, but have not seen any sample add in that create buttons in the compose window toolbar/read message window toolbar. Pointers to those kind of samples would be of great help to me.

I am using Visual Studio 2005 to create the add in for Outlook 2007. I have also attached a sample image my question.
Thanks a lot.
