You can add a custom actions via SharePoint app (SharePoint hosted also). Here is nice tutorial in MSDN https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj163954.aspx

To redirect a page you need to specify UrlAction where you can use some SharePoint tokens, like {ListId}, etc. If you need some more logic you should specify a Command for you custom action. Also you have to specify WHERE do you want to add this custom action and register it appropriately.

If you need more informaction about how to create custom actions check link below:
