How to include additional information in the address field?

For example, a place has these address fields: street, number, district, city and ZIP code (based on iD editor).

If the place has other information such as: shop, room, apartment ... where you insert them?

That's because the street name is already captured automatically by the editor and the number field must contain only numbers (addr: housenumber).

I have put this information in the note field, but I understand that is not the best alternative. It should be created an additional information field (complementary) for this purpose.

One would inform whether there is any specific tag for this information?

The most widely used "extra" address field is probably addr:unit.

OpenStreetMap does not limit the amount of fields you can have on an object; it is only the simplified user interface (aka "presets") of some editors that will offer you a limited set of fields. You can always add so-called tags (key-value pairs) yourself. See http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:addr for suggestions about which tags to use.

If all else fails, use "addr:full" and write the full address like it would be written on a postal envelope.

Yes, but as I said, the way already have the name, the editor will have the option to include it, getting everything in its place

Ideally, have a addr: additional.
