Instead of modifying Plus and Times (which can be problematic) why not program the infix symbols CircleTimes and CirclePlus to do what you want? In:= CirclePlus[a_, b_] := f[a, b] In:= CircleTimes[a_, b_] := g[a, b] where f and g can be any function you want. They have no built-in attributes and have TraditionalForm input and output so you should be able to easily program them.
