This is not a simple thing, there is a lot involved in creating a UI for a calculator.

If all you want to do is calculations, you can type a calculation into the Console Window and it will execute.  You can do fairly complicated calculations quickly using this technique.

Here's a video that explains how it's done:

The Acrobat JavaScript Console Window - YouTube

If you want an actual popup adding machine type calculator. I've build a tool that does this and it's available on this membership site.

Search Downloads

It's listed under the name Paper Tape Calculator (towards the bottom of the page), because it keeps a list of all the numbers and lets you paste them onto a PDF.  It also automatically pulls in any numbers on a PDF Page that have a rectangle drawn around them. Writing such a tool is an advanced scripting task.
