Does anyone know of add-ins for SW 2009 that add the following symbols:
Section 3.14 "Parting Lines" and "This Side of Parting Line"
Section 3.14.1 "All Over This Side of Parting Line"
Section 4.6.1 "Movable Targets"
Yes I agree with you that making blocks will be the best and quick option here.
And for new line type/style, in an open drawing go to Tools > Options > Document Properties> Line Style
Welcome to SW forums Peter.
You can generate the symbols yourself by modifying the Gtol.sym file. Check here to know as how to do it.

Two of the symbols, Deepak, are intergrated with leader lines, similar to the 'all around' leader line symbol. Thank you for the suggestion, but I am guessing that Gtol.sym symbols will not attach to the leader. Am I correct? The parting line symbol is intended to connect to phantom lines, so I could make a block that would serve as a symbol. I am familiar with designing linetypes in AutoCAD, so perhaps it is likely that I could figure out how to do that in SW, but making a block is probably adequate.
If you create it your self then you are correct that adding a leader
is not an option. All of the G-tols that are in feature control frames
can be attached to leaders. You can fake it out by adding a blank
leader and make the symbol you create look lik it is attached.
