I downloaded openldap-2.3.35.tgz now I have to add the back-ldap modules to my own installation under gentoo .
How can I make it?

If you don't have the "minimal" use flag set, back-ldap should be there, see the 2.3.35-r1 ebuild for details. Additionally, you have to uncomment the modulepath and moduleload directive for back_ldap.la in slapd.conf.

OP's asking how to stuff gained from an OpenLDAP tarball build into a patent Gentoo setup (Gentoo is derived from Debian, IIRC).
It's a source based distro on its own.

The correct answer would be that it can't be done (by a novice). Alternatively that it *can* be done by someone who has no need to ask how.
The OP falsely assumed the gentoo openldap package lacks back_ldap support. All he has to do is unmasking openldap-2.3.35-r1 and emerge it. If he wishes to install a newer version, in most cases all it takes is copying the ebuild to a new one with the new version number.
