Is that right, that I can't create custom object type with C.O.F.F.E.E.? I need an object with new custom property page, and custom icon.

Is there a way to create new page of properties for tags? Or it's only works with dialogs called by double cliks?

You have to make a plugin tag - one cannot add to the built-in types (in COFFEE or C++).
My suggestion - you want to make a plugin object, learn C++. COFFEE is very limited in what it can do, unfortunately.

I know C++, at least enough to make this plug-in, but I don't want install VS2005 just to make some simple plug-in. I tough COFFEE is enough. I wonder, what for COFFEE exist at all.

While I agree, I think that Maxon's take on COFFEE is more as a script interface and not a full plugin environment. It is amazing that there is plugin tag and shader support as it is (though even they recommend using C++ for shader plugins instead).
Being that COFFEE is an interpreted script language, it is possible that they consider things such as objects to be too time critical (like shaders).
