use alter table / add column

The order of columns really shouldnt matter as you can place them in any order in your select query

You can add a column, but not insert. In theory, relational databases does not care about the sequence of the column nor rows. At least in theory. This because you can specify the sequence of these columns, anyway....

If you really need to, create a table with that new column inserted, then populate it with your data coming from the original table.

Good Luck!!!
