maybe it'll be helpful for anyone else, I was helped by Mike Krüger
and that's what he had answered

We don't have a very "good" extension point, but one that can do anything.
The thing you're looking for is  called TextEditorExtension.

Somethin like that should work:
<Extension path = "/MonoDevelop/Ide/TextEditorExtensions">
<Class fileExtensions = ".cs" class = "YourClass" />

You should add a MarginDrawer to the TextViewMargin to draw stuff like that.
(I've never done anything like that as an external addin - if you run
into problems I'll change the API :))
