I have an edge selected and I need to add a new point that is exactly at the middle of that edge.

How can I achieve that?

Subdivide the edge

Subdivide the edge by clicking Subdivide on the Tools Panel (T key) or by searching the Subdivide operator in the Operator Search (space key)

subdivide an edge in 2

The edge is cut in 2

Now the edge is cut in 2 by its middle - a new vertex is added.

How have more cuts?

If you want to have more vertices equally distributed, simply change the Number of Cuts in the Subdivide properties
