You need to make a network place style shortcut, which normally live in "%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts"


Navigate to
%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

Create a directory with the name you want to appear in the Send to menu
Set the read-only attribute on the directory

In the directory
Create this text file
desktop.ini

With this content
[.ShellClassInfo]
CLSID2={0AFACED1-E828-11D1-9187-B532F1E9575D}
Flags=2

Set the attributes on the desktop.ini file to +r +a +h

Create a shortcut file (.lnk) to the target UNC path
rename to target.lnk

You might need to do some explorer refreshes to get the item to appear in the Send to menu.
