You'd want to create an attachment object, and set its ParentId to the Id of the custom object row, no need for apex, this is easily done through the regular enterprise/partner APIs, something like

 

 

Attachment a = new Attachment();

a.setParentId("A0A....");

a.setContentType("application/pdf");

a.setBody(loadFileAsBytes());

a.setName("my attachment");

SaveResult [] sr = binding.create(new SObject [] {a});

Your help appreciated.
