I understand that it would use a Flash movie. But, how would I make the .exe file?

Ive made a few you can find them on http://www.kotor2files.com
To make the exe, you export the flash movie as a projector file

it depends what version of Flash you have, in flash 8 you need to go:

publish -> files -> Select: projector -> Publish

and then go any find the projector

I've made the .exe. Now, how do I add the buttons?

You should have made the buttons before you exported it, The Action script for the buttons would be:

OnRelease(
fscommand(exec, the app to execute)
)

If you are pretty new to flash i would familiarise yourself with the functions
