Im not sure I fully understand your request but it sounds like the feature of adding markers to path nodes.

Read about it here: http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Attributes-Stroke.html#Attributes-Stroke-Markers

In the latest development build you can draw an object and "convert" it to a marker using Object > Objects to Marker. You will see your object appear in the Stroke style dialog from where you can put it along a path of your choice.
