I would like to create a single command or rather a single button that executes the commands latex-dvi-ps-ps-pdf in a sequence. How do I customize Winedt 8 to achieve this?

In general, my question is, how to add new customizations to the existing Winedt 8 System.

What you need is already explained in this answer by Karl Koeller. He uses PDFTeXify method for this. If you want a brute LaTeX + DVIPS + PS2PDF, follow the steps as explained in the linked answer. But instead of

  ITEM="dvi2ps2pdf"
    CAPTION="dvi2ps2pdf"
    IMAGE="TeXIconRed"
    SAVE_INPUT=1
    MACRO=`Assign("Old-PDFTeXify-Method","%$('PDFTeXify-Method');");`+
          `Assign("PDFTeXify-Method","2");`+
          `Exe('%b\Exec\TeX\PDFTeXify.edt');`+
          `Assign("PDFTeXify-Method","%$('Old-PDFTeXify-Method');");`+
          `Release("Old-PDFTeXify-Method");`
    SHORTCUT="24665::Shift+Ctrl+Y"
    REQ_FILTER=:"%!M=TeX"|"%!M=TeX:STY"|"%!M=TeX:AUX"
  ITEM="-"

use

  ITEM="dvi2ps2pdfSS"    // SS for your name ;)
    CAPTION="dvi2ps2pdfSS"
    IMAGE="TeXIconWood"
    SAVE_INPUT=1
    MACRO=`Exe('%b\Exec\TeX\LaTeX.edt');`+
          `Exe('%b\Exec\TeX\dvi2ps.edt');`+
          `Exe('%b\Exec\TeX\ps2pdf.edt');`
    SHORTCUT="24650::Shift+Ctrl+J"
    REQ_FILTER=:"%!M=TeX"|"%!M=TeX:STY"|"%!M=TeX:AUX"
 ITEM="-"

and in Toolbar.ini, use

MENU="dvi2ps2pdfSS"
