You can add a state to an ECC by using the New Action item of the ECC workspace's popup menu (the menu that you get by clicking the right mouse button on an empty area of the workspace).
You can delete a state from an ECC by using the Delete option of its popup menu or by using the Alt+Del keychord. Since this will also delete all transitions to or from the state, a dialog box will pop up to give you a chance to cancel this action.
