You need two things:
a form and an action; optionally, a result page
You can start with the form "fileAdd.dtml" (search your computer for it).

The necessary documentation is in the embedded Online help:
Zope Help -> API Reference -> File
Search the archives and Zope.org for the relevant methods to
find examples and more information.
