Custom Like Buttons

Hi all,

New to Elgg, but looks like a great platform. I haven't read the developer documentation yet, so unfamiliar with theming practices, but I would like to add different 'like' buttons to posts. Currently there is the thumbs up one, and I would like to add different ones.

I image this would be a case of adding more database columns, and then editing the php files that display the existing thumbs up button to also display others. 

Could anyone give me some tips on where I should get started? Cheers!
