1) Create my own advisor (for some specific purpose)

2) Which will advise the deployer which creates VMs in openstack

Can you please clarify what you mean by 'deployment advisor'?

What I meant was - in openstack we can create Virtual Machines right? So when you create each VMs - is there any we can advise optmizations or rules to the service which does this?

Do you mean, for example, to alter the scheduling algorithm which determines which physical machines are used for particular virtual machines?

Yes this is what exactly I am looking for

Not to alter - but add some additional logic

I understand that you want to alter the scheduling algorithm in OpenStack Compute.

The OpenStack Operations Guide's "Customizing" chapter has an example on the nova scheduler here:

I hope that helps!
