you can add point data using:

var img = document.createElement('img');
img.src = 'images/marker.png';
img.style.cursor = 'help';
img.onclick = markerClicked;

//note you only need one drawing canvas normally, but you can use  
more than one
var canvas = myKaMap.createDrawingCanvas(1000);

myKaMap.addObjectGeo(canvas, x, y, img);

function markerClicked() {
     alert('clicked a marker');

You don't need to be in query mode to interact with basic overlays  
like this.



(note code untested)
