What do you mean by "generated"?  [process] processes based on the
mv_action/mv_todo that you pass along with it. What happens next depends
on any mv_(form|order)_profile(s), mv_c(li|he)ck(s), and mv_nextpage. In
the case of entering orders if you are submitting the order then it will
depend on which order route is specified in either mv_order_route or the
default (last) in the catalog configuration.

In your case, you should probably have a look at shipping.asc. If my
understanding is correct you can probably setup a special shipping mode,
then during your order entry sequence at some point you set mv_shipmode
to that special shipping mode. Then make sure your order routes know how
to account for it if any additional processing is required.

The "E-commerce" section on the RTFM details this pretty well.
