If it's an object defined in Python you can usually attach methods directly to the object or it's Python type.  But otherwise we have no support for automatically adding .NET extension methods to existing types currently.  It is a frequent request and we will probably get to it at some point.

Subject: [IronPython] Extension methods in python

Is there the equivalent of extension method in python?  I want to put a variable into the script scope and create extension methods for it.  Does this make sense and is it possible?
