https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Fields+and+Screens covers everything you need, including adding new fields, putting them on screens and making them mandatory.

However, Jira does NOT support mandatory fields in the way you are probably assuming. If you want a field to be optional for part of the lifecycle, and mandatory later, you have to do that in the workflow, and not with screens.

Example - if you have "test result" - useless when issue is created, developed and under test, but you want the testers to fill it in. You need the field optional in Jira's field definitions. Then you add a "validator" to the "finish testing" transition in workflow to say "user must fill in the test result here"
