Open the script in the script editor highlight it all and just drag and drop on a toolbar it should create a button. then just save the tool bar and you will have it everytime max loads.

It really depends on the TYPE of the script. Some scripts are meant to be on toolbars. Other scripts are meant to be loaded like plugins (you put the .MS file, like the Vase one, in any plugin folder, or in a sub-folder of a folder listed in your plugin.ini, and it will be loaded on startup). There is also a dedicated Scripts\Startup folder for scripts you want to have evaluated when Max is starting.

I give you the "MAXScript For New And Casual Users" help topic which explains some of the approaches:

There is also the "Startup Scripts" topic which explains how Max processes script files when booting...

Hope this helps.
