1. You can use ScriptRunner (built-in function)
2. Python + Rest API (https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-apis/jira-rest-apis)
3. DB is bad idea, in fact, it is possible. 3 table customfield* for your experiments. Please, start on test env.
3 is a very very bad idea - it's not just customfield tables. Caches and counter tables matter as well.
There is another trick - create a spreadsheet with one line per option you want to add, and two columns (the second can be just a duplicate of the first!)
Import it into a temporary project that has your field in it, using column 1 as summary, and 2 as the option. Tell Jira to import the options into the field. Throw away the temporary project and the issues you've created.
