I do have a custom list and this is used for history tracking - only add is allowed. How do I disable "Edit" and "Delete" menus both from the ribbon and on the context menu only for this specific list?

Those are security trimmed so people with only Add permissions won't see them, owners and administrators will. Since Add only isn't a default permission set, I'm assuming you created a cutom permission and applied it to the users via creating a broken permissions. They will not see those options, well, they'll be displayed, but they'll be greyed out.
