Creating Custom Buttons on Objects Dynamically

I've spent a while going through the Metadata and Apex documentation looking for a way to add a custom button to an object's detail page programatically, and can't seem to find anything.
Our project team is attempting to create a wizard that runs post-package-installation that can create custom buttons on arbitrary objects depending on the particular org's object schema some one-time user input.
As an example, I'd like to be able to attach a custom button w/ user-defined text and url on the Account object details page without requiring the user to enter setup -> customize -> accounts -> buttons and links, and instead, do it through apex or one of the APIs.
Would anyone be able to tell me if this is even possible on the force platform, and if so, the best way to go about it?

I am looking for the same option to create custom buttons and links in Accounts tab using java webservice API.

Is there any solutions available for this?
