How can you add missions to the bfme 2 campaigns or add new campaigns?

I asked the question on bfme 2 heaven and I was told you couldn't. However I've seen mods that add campaigns to bfme 2 and was wondering: If you can add campaign mission to the campaign how would you do it and is it hard to do for someone new to modding?

You need to edit this file:
\data\ini\linearcampaign.ini :p
To add just add another block of code like this:
Mission RivendellEnd
		Map = "MAP GOOD Rivendell"
		IntroMovie = Good_Rivendell_Intro
		LoadScreenImage = CampaignGood_Rivendell_LoadScreen
		LoadScreenMusicTrack = BaGood02
		MillisecondsAfterStartToStartFadeUp = 1400
		
	; List CarryoverUnits which we don't want to appear at the beginning of the map automatically
	; These units don't spawn right away; save them until the scripts ask for them
		DelayCarryoverSpawningOf = ElvenElrond
		DelayCarryoverSpawningOf = ElvenArwen
		DelayCarryoverSpawningOf = DwarvenGloin

	; These unit don't appear in this map as all; we're using this to hide their existence until later missions
		DelayCarryoverSpawningOf = ElvenHaldir
		DelayCarryoverSpawningOf = DwarvenDain
		DelayCarryoverSpawningOf = ElvenThranduil
	End

You can add it wherever you want your campaign to happen ;)
