Adding units and stuff to the database?

You mean adding units to the MPQ? I dunno if you can add them, but it might be possible to replace/edit the default units, if you can manage to find where the data is stored.
Also, for expansion-only units (Spell Breaker, Shadow Hunter, etc.) you will have to edit the expansion MPQ as well (War3x.mpq).

If you do plan to do this I think MPQDraft can do it, but don't expect it to be as simple as editing units in the World Editor.

You can not add custom units into Warcraft3 MPQ and play with them on ladder.

You can add your customizations for your map/campaign, or create a mod for warcraft that can simply change your whole warcraft in order to your wishes. But i guess thats not what are you looking for.

If answer don't satisfy you, say what exactly your question is about.
