I am using outlook 2010 and trying to add a send and receive button to the ribbon visible when the home tab is selected.
when I try to customize it, and add it, I see in the customization window it is already there. however, it is not visible when viewing the tool bar.

You have to create a new group first.  Make it look like this.

I did not have to make a new group. I just added it to the Send/Receive group and it worked for me without a new group.

where did you add the button      at the bottom of the list...

I think (as I recall) I added it to Send/Receive.  I have done that for Outlook 2013. 2010, and 2007 and it seems to work.

I need Send/Receive because I use POP3 email and disabled the feature to send automatically (I like to think a second time before sending). When I am ready, I just want to click Send/Receive.
