Why you don't add more features like "Extract Method". This feature will
pick some selected code and make a static, or not, method with the
parameters that is need. 
Put in the place of the selected code the call, and create the Method.

This feature calculate the necessary parameters that this method need.

There is more features about refactoring:
# Reorder Parameters
# Extract Method
# Extract Property
# Create Overload
# Surrounds With
# Encapsulate field
# Reverse Conditional
# Simplify expression
# Introduce Local
# Introduce constant
# Inline Temp
# Replace Temp with Query
# Split Temporary Variable
# Move initialization to declaration
# Split initialization from declaration
# Move declaration near reference

I think that in the Right-Click the popup should have the all the
possible operations that the user should do at the time.

In the menu should have all the features. Some could be disable. But all
should be there.

Hope I could help
