Question:
System components have different numbers after name. e.g. End Plate (144). Custom components have number (1). How can I add a number to my Custom Component? 

Answer:
All Custom Components get number 1 as a default. It can't can be changed. You can always write a number into Custom Component's name so it would be for example "My component (999) (1)". To make it searchable in Component Catalog, add the number to the keywords (right click Custom Component in Component Catalog > Edit Keywords..).
