Own Powerpoint shape like objects

I just got inspired by some PowerPoint Addons with own shape like objects in the presentations, but don't find an approach to realize own ones.

What I need to do:
- create and position an new shape like object (for example a Star with 7 edges) by a button click in an own Ribbon
- have a special and customized context menu when I select this object

I should be working just like this harvey ball object shown in this video:
but with my own objects...

Maybe someone got point into the right direction on how to create such an object which is saved in a presentation slide and how to watch for events on them.

And as last point. Which part of the API to use when I want to show an own special context menu on demand.

The "many" documentation and examples I found so far didn't cover this.
I currently code in C# but it's more an object model question and I can use examples in VB or anything else too.
