Sugar 7: How do I create and link records from custom module?

Hey I'm using SugarCRM 7.5.1 Pro,
my task is to create custom module - Orders. This module is linked one-to-many with Products module (some module). I must be able to add products when I create Order.  This is somehow similar to Quotes module.

I have created modules described above and linked them together in studio, and I have created custom view in Orders module record view and create-actions view for adding the products. Added products I store in module's "context" attribute as a new object.

All what I want to do for now is to create products and link them to the order when the "create/save" is pressed.

How can I do it?
And can it be done in create-actions view just right after the Orders record is saved, so I could link products to newly created order?

SugarCRM is new to me, so I hope for some guidance, I have invested much time to get to this point, I tried to read all Sidecars source code to solve the problem and of course I learned mutch despite the fact I didn't understand a half of it, but I guess not enough :)

ps. I added a screenshot of my Order's create-actions view sketch.
