Answer is simple: you can't. These sort of things are "baked into" the model. If they weren't there to start with, it means there is no texture assigned to that part of the model. You'll need the source code to alter any of that. That's at leats my understanding of the case, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Ouch. I thought it was possible to add reflections by playing with the alpha channel or something.

Oh wait... I thought you meant window reflections in the VC, like for exmaple in the default 737-800. Is that what you mean? Or do you mean the cockpit windows of the exterior model?

No not the exterior model.I mean the reflections you see when you sit in the cockpit.You have them in the default planes, the leveld, the duke and so on.

Ah okay, no, then it's impossible for as far as I know. The reflections you see are dedicated texture files. They are not "real" reflctions.
