In the state of NH
can I write my own addendum to a last will and testament staing beneficiaries to retirement accounts?
do I have a notary stamp this and bind as an attachment?

No. If you are going to name someone in your will you need to do a codicil which has the same requirements as writing a will. However, you can name the beneficiaries of your retirement account in your retirement documents and that does not become part of your estate.
Make sure that you are doing everything exactly right or your wishes may not be honored
