You can try this tutorial but it doesn't work for everyone for some reason.

Did you make a whole new model or just modifications to an existing one?

I just extracted the original jedi trainer from assets0.pk3 and used it that's what the tut. had instructed to do. Someone answered my thread on another forum today they suggested i try renaming him reborntrainer and removing the jedi part???? I thought I might try that.

Yeah, that tutorial didn't work for me. I have to make a pk3 file to get the mod to show up in the menu. I've heard of a lot of weird stuff happening when you try to make new NPCs. Has anyone truly mastered this area?

Well I'm not sure if you have played the tavion level or not, but it has three custom npc a rodian, and two other they work great. I have seen a few other sp levels where it worked. Theres a bunch of threads but one has yet to work for me(other than a stormtrooper) and I have done each one atleast ten times. I'm sure soon someone will release amod perhaps there's a guy at lucasforums lord I-something and he said he would be releasing a mod soon. Although it might limit you in which custom npc's you can add. I would suggest this, a guy replyed to one of my threads about an ultimate mod 3.0 I think it's at jediknightii.net-he said to look at his pk3.s and stuff and maybe that would sorta give me an idea of how to do it. Although I can't seem to get on Jediknightii.net, it and lucasforums I can't seem to access tonight.

I have played the Tavion level and I have to say it's the best one to date. It does have some issues but it's lots of fun to play. The guy who made it replaced existing Jedi NPCs to create the new characters. If you have the Tavion pk3 open it up and see how he did it.

I looked at it last night there appears to be several ibi files which I assume are icarus scripting -which I have not learned yet. Mainframe has them to an it has custom npcs. 007 has some new tuts at his site on the subject of scripting but there are just a few as of now. Iw as gonna try em out just to get the feel of icarus. Oh and I aggree tavion is the best sp level yet. ALthough I have a really good large map made but I am hesistant to release it yet As I wanna give the player some else to fight than the same old reborns.
