    RadGrid is data-bound control and its items are created based on the records in its datasource and display the datasource data. Therefore, in order to add new row in the grid, you need to add new record in its datasource and rebind the grid.

    To your second question, you can try to extend a cell if its value is the same as a value in the next row cell, by increasing its RowSpan and making the next row cell invisible as shown below:
    protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            for (int rowIndex = RadGrid1.Items.Count - 2; rowIndex >= 0; rowIndex--) 
                GridDataItem row = RadGrid1.Items[rowIndex]; 
                GridDataItem previousRow = RadGrid1.Items[rowIndex + 1]; 
                if (row["ColumnUniqueName"].Text == previousRow["ColumnUniqueName"].Text) 
                    row["ColumnUniqueName"].RowSpan = previousRow["ColumnUniqueName"].RowSpan < 2 ? 2 : previousRow["ColumnUniqueName"].RowSpan + 1; 
                    previousRow["ColumnUniqueName"].Visible = false

    As for freezing columns, you can achieve that by setting ClientSettings -> Scrolling -> FrozenColumnsCount to the desired number, as demonstrated in the following online demo.
