You need a .addin.xml file. IIRC the templates needs to be a resource
in an AddIn assembly too. Have you read

It's non-trivial to add new project and file templates to MD, and this
problem has come up several times now. I think we should add a way to
load templates from ~/.config/MonoDevelop/Templates (or similar).
