There is no way to "detect" when someone has reached the physical display
limits of a field, as far as I know. Creating an addendum page on the fly is
not something anybody with Reader will be able to do. You could switch to a
smaller font size on the fly after a certain character limit is reached, or
pop a hidden text field into view over the previous one (and let people page
back and forth with some kind of button control), or something along those
lines, but spawning new pages is out of the question unless your users have
the full commercial version of Acrobat, or unless you can generate new pages
at the server somehow.
