I haven't added a source term before but you may just define the "source" field in createfields.h file locate in the source code of this solver that you would find in "applications" folder.

Also you may add your source term to momentum equation in the C file located in the source code folder of this solver. Then you may specify relevant solvers to solve for this sorce term in fvSolution.

You may find the exact procedure if you thoroughly search this forum.
