Hi !

Don't know if it works on all Mathematica version, but you can add a new
option just by SetOptions

In[..]:= nb=Notebooks[][[1]]
Out[..]:=NotebookObject[Untitled-1]

In[..]:= SetOptions[nb,NewOption->"newvalue"]
In[..]:= Options[nb]

Out[..]:={FrontEndVersion -> 5.1 for X, ScreenRectangle -> {{0., 1024.}, {0.,
768.}}, WindowSize -> {520., 600.}, 
  WindowMargins -> {{150., Automatic}, {Automatic, 52.}}, NewOption -> value, 
  StyleDefinitions -> Default.nb}


with kind regards...
