Roll is a characteristic of a coat that can not be easily altered. So your coat has to be made to roll to 2. Feasibly one can add a button to a 2 buttin jacket and have "3 roll to 2" coat.

So there is nothing much to "achieving" this look, besides getting a proper garment.

I was just recently wondering about the notion of adding a button and a buttonhole. I would never do it because I'm aiming for authenticity, but how hard would it be?

Not. The biggest challenge would be matching the color of the thread used for the original buttonholes.

However, since most 2-button jackets are darted, it still wouldn't look quite like a true 3/2 sack, which has no darts.
