You can add one, but you’ll see a seam.

Lots of things can be added to a dress if you have a good seamstress. You will need many yards of fabric and beading to do it. Once you buy the fabric and pay the seamsress to add the train and make it look like the rest of the dress with pickups and beading, it may end up being just as expensive as having bought the higher priced dress to begin with. 

You could wear a chathedral veil thats super long. This would give you the effect of having something trailing behind you, without having to pay for all the work of adding a train to the actual dress. just a thought. Good luck!

You can add a cape train from the top of the back of the dress or from the waist of the dress or from underneath the skirt but the skirt that’s there would have to lay over it..  Adding on to the end of the dress is not going to look good because there will be seams.
