With proto_tree_add_text(), there is only a text label placed in pane2. If you want to use the data as a field (to be able to filter on it and add it as a column), you will need to use one of the other proto_tree_add_* functions (that do use a hf variable).

ya since we dont have hfindex in it we cant add it we have a function where we can add hex elements into the pane1 i would like 16 bytes from the raw data to be separated by a single whitespace under a single name

Have a look at all the proto_tree_add_* functions in epan/proto.h

I think proto_tree_add_bytesformat() would fit your need best.
