There are two basic aspects to new weapons. The first involves simply changing the graphics of the original weapons to your new graphics. In this aspect, only the appearance of the weapons changes -- before being picked up, picked up and idle, being fired, and being reloaded. The behavior of the weapons does not change. To implement this aspect, first find appropriate graphics. ftp.cdrom.com/pub/doom2/graphics is a good place to start. Alternatively, check out the TCs under doom2/themes at cdrom.com and see which new weapons people have done. After you have appropriate graphics, you'll need a graphic/wad editor such as WinTex or DeePSea to insert/replace your weapons. Replacing the graphics is relatively straightforward if you know what you're doing. Otherwise, read the help files or ask questions here. Give it a try, and be specific in your questions. Doing a tutorial on graphics editing from scratch is a time-comsuming thing, so it's unlikely that you'll find people with the patience to tutor you unless you first try the thing out.

The second aspect is altering the appearance and/or the behavior of your weapons. Altering the behavior (damage, maximum ammo you can carry, etc.) requires modifying the .exe file, and is not recommended for someone new to editing. DeHacked is a widely-used utility to modify the .exe. It comes with a text file that explains things in detail. For more help on using DeHacked, visit:

click on the DooM General button, then on the Dehacked Information and Tutorials link.

Or alternately you could get the EDGE source port and learn the DDF language that comes with it to make your own real new weapons with that. An example of this is the Immoral Conduct mod (http://www.doomworld.com/immoralconduct/). EDGE can be found at http://edge.sourceforge.net
