If you have a Menu I believe you can use Attach(...) to add a new

There is an example in Monodoc:
MenuBar mb = new MenuBar ();
Menu file_menu = new Menu ();
MenuItem exit_item = new MenuItem("Exit");
file_menu.Append (exit_item);
MenuItem file_item = new MenuItem("File");
file_item.Submenu = file_menu;
mb.Append (file_item);   

The Activated event is emitted from a MenuItem when it is activated.
