So I bought a dinghy and wanna add some things to it. Really have no experience with boats or kayaks at all. If I added a fishing seat to it, would it be to much?

If you have mechanical and installation skills used for other situations, they will help in customizing your dingy. Finding a comfortable seat with adjustments and a seatback cuts fatigue, and makes your outings much more enjoyable. I also like things like a Hands-free speed and steering control, and adjustable rod holders. A Google search should turn up sources for these and other things which might be of interest to you.

you need to register it if you are fishing public waters with the trolling motor.

I added this seat swivel to my Jon boat and I really like it. It allows you to remove the seat when not in use and you can change the seat type if needed.

Once I get my backup seat swapped out. You can have the one that has a small tear in it. It should mount perfect on that swivel that osbornfishing posted. I like the look of that little boat more than jon boat.

Nice little boat. As others have said a clamp on swivel seat with a back, a couple pole holders and a registration with TPW, you’ll be set. If you fish before sunrise or after sunset you’ll need navigation lights. Battery operated clamp on models are cheap.

Here are photos of the way my friend customized his dinghy. I don't have a picture of it but he also added the seat base clamp and the seat.

He sat in the front so he devised a way to control the speed and direction of the trolling motor.

He sold it a year ago after we got a boat so I cannot get a picture but it was mounted on the front bench in the same location as the PDF shown in the previous photo.

Here are the parts that were bought from Academy:
