I dont think you can add any field on it.

please refer the below link which states that it's a readonly object:

NoteAndAttachment is a standard object that give you access to either of 2 other standard objects : "Note" and "Attachment"

None of these objects can be extended with custom fields. You have no workaround for direct customization (no page layout, no custom field...)

If you still want to customize atachments, you will probably go with new custom objects (to host new fields and refer to notes and attachments) and create VisualForce pages. But it's probably lots of work, try keeping standard to get the benefit of std page layouts
