You need to define a new URL by using hook_menu.

There, 'type' is set as MENU_LOCAL_TASK and URL is like 'node/%node/CUSTOM_CONFIG'.

Code snippet from the hook_menu in node.module:

 $items['node/%node/edit'] = array(
    'title' => 'Edit',
    'page callback' => 'node_page_edit',
    'page arguments' => array(1),
    'access callback' => 'node_access',
    'access arguments' => array('update', 1),
    'weight' => 0,
    'type' => MENU_LOCAL_TASK,
    'file' => 'node.pages.inc',
