I tried this :

def add_ClassProperty(product, klass, property, value):
     """Change a class properties
        The class must have PropertyManager in its hierarchy
     exec 'from %s import %s' % (product, klass)
     exec 'setattr(%s, property, value)' % (klass)
     exec '%s._properties=%s._properties+({\'id\':property, 
\'type\':\'string\'},)' % (klass, klass)

add_ClassProperty('OFS.Folder', \
                   'Folder', 'New_property', 'New Value')

It works with Folder and other classes i've tested
With PloneSite (from Products.CMFPlone.Portal, the proprety doesn't 
appear via the ZMI but i can't add a propety with the same name 
(Duplicate id error) so the proprety exists.
I don't know why t doesn't appear in manage_propertiesForm i think that 
may be linked with PloneSite behaviour or CustomizationPolicy. I d'nt 
know and i didn't search the reason.
