Ya'aleh Vayavo is added to the amidot on Rosh Hodesh beginning from the arvit preceding the day of Rosh Hodesh. This is true even for one who prayed arvit before pelag haminha. One who forgot to say Ya'aleh Vayavo during arvit is not required to repeat his amida since Rosh Hodesh can not be established at night. If during arvit he remembered after saying Hashem's name at the end of the beracha that he forgot to say it, he may not finish off with "lamdeini hukecha" and go back. Even though one who forgot does not need to repeat the amida, he is still not permitted to skip it intentionally. Therefore, if one realizes during his amida that by skipping Ya'aleh Va'yavo he will finish in time to respond amen or yehei shemei rabah or anything else, he still may not skip any part of it. If he finished the amida, realized he forgot, and wants to volonteer a new amida as a nedavah, or a "gift" he is not permitted to do so. However, if he thought he was required to repeat the amida and after starting he remembered that he is not and decided at that point to finish it off as a nedavah, he may do so.
