Actually that is quite easy:
go to the directory \vampire\vdata\system\ in your bloodlines folder. Open the files histories000.txt and traiteffects000.txt with a simple texteditor.

Histories000 contains the name and descriptions for the history (What you can see in character creation and the info part of the chareditor).
Traitseffects is used to create the actual modifications on the character. Both files are rather self explanatory.
From my experiments on histories, I know that you can even add a new discipline for the character, but only on a fixed level. It's not possible to spend xp on this new one later.

If you have more specific quetions later, ask again.

I'm not sure. There might be a limitation on the textlenght. Or you have used something that the parser interpretes as end of the entry (") or commentary (//).  If you need " in the text you have to write it as \"
Or did yo try to get the whole description in one of the "short.." fields?
That's the only things I can think of.
