Highlight to add to google sheet

I want to be able to highlight a name from anywhere and have a right-click option that will add it to a pre-defined column and row of a particular online spreadsheet.  One option might be to highlight as depicted in this video http://screencast.com/t/bb1VLSbFT.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think that's going to be very difficult to achieve. When you're talking about customizing a Sheet, you're really looking at Google Apps Script, which is linked to a specific sheet only. As such, the script is only accessible from within that spreadsheet. So if you're on a standard website or another application, there's nothing that links the script in a sheet to that particular app. And I don't know if it's possible to add items to the context menu of Chrome like you suggest in your video, but if it is it would almost certainly have to be done through a properly programmed app (think Java, Python, etc) and not through a simple apps script.
You might want to think about a simple HR management system. There are a number of them available as cloud applications in the Google Webstore, and for such a small usage you might be able to find something for free or for very little money. Best not to re-invent the wheel on this one I think.
