		place(Glowstonewire);
	}
}

There's an event for that: PlayerInteractEvent#RightClickBlock.

so like if i am rightclicking on an item in say slot#2 and i want it to place a block i would use PlayerInteractEvent#RightClickBlock

I would look into how redstone does it.

No.

Redstone's item overrides a method that Glowstone dust's item does not. This only way to get the required behaviour is to use an event, as ChampionAsh already said.

Pretty sure you'll need to create a new TileEntity to do this.

Absolutely not. Redstone dust wire does not use a tile entity.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

I couldn't find a restone_dust item anywhere

there is not any class of the Item it is just a normal BlockNamedItem

see:

net.minecraft.item.Items

 I will make fun of you if you are not able to look into the (vanilla-) code.

Note that BlockNamedItem is a subclass of Item that overrides methods and that glowstone dust is just a regular Item.

So my statement is no less false.

You have created the block, yes? Placing the block depends on how you're doing it, whether you're overriding the vanilla class just to add this functionality or if you're using the PlayerInteractEvent#RightClickBlock. Supposing you're using the latter, you check what you want, such as player is holding this item, and then getWorld() for placing the block, getPos() for the block the player is looking at, and getSide() to increment the direction so you don't just replace the block, and use World#setBlockState to place the block. Make sure to check that the block you're replacing is replaceable.
