Not sure what you mean by "install", but you can of course change your theme to have an additional column at the left or right of your content and you can of course fill that with your custom content. Edit themes/yourtheme/template.html to accomplish that.
If that's not what you're up to, use more words to describe what you actually want to accomplish.

No, there isn't. Edit template.html (of the theme you're using). Plain HTML, nothing else. ;)

There can't be a mod that automatically adds a column: you need to specify what goes into the column and you need to specify all visual aspects of the column. Do as I suggested and edit themes/yourtheme/template.html (http://www.orangewallpapers.com/themes/morpheusX_blue/template.html in your case) with your favorite plain text editor. Only HTML beginner skills needed. You already have edited that file, and some of your edits don't make sense at all, so I went ahead and corrected some of your most serious mistakes. You need to learn HTML basics (correct table cell nesting), which we can not teach you, because that's beyond the scope of this board.
Attached are replacement files for http://www.orangewallpapers.com/themes/morpheusX_blue/template.html and http://www.orangewallpapers.com/themes/morpheusX_blue/style.css - you need to rename them after downloading and then replace the files on your webserver with the ones I attached.
It takes an extra effort to come up with such newbie-proof explanations - I expect that you thoroughly review the files and try to learn from the changes applied.
Please do not ask more plain HTML questions - this forum is not the right place to have others do your homework for you.

We have a strict "one issue per thread" policy that you agreed to respect when signing up. Additionally, I have already told you that this is not the place to learn HTML/CSS. Yours is a straightforward CSS question. Set the width attribute for the cells that define the columns. Locking.
