Create it in the Data Model editor using the Formula Column button (can be found in the Tool Palette).

Name it as you wish, choose its datatype and width. Press "PL/SQL Formula" property button and write PL/SQL code which would return desired value.

Create a field in the Paper Layout editor and make it source to be previously defined formula column.

By the way, all this (and much more) can be found in Report Builder's Online Help System. Why didn't you search for it?
