How do I add a book to my TBR list that has a valid ISBN but is not in the database? I think there is a way to do this, but I can't remember how.

Search for it in the database (try both 10 and 13 digit ISBNs, if you have them) and see if it comes up.  If not, wait a couple of days and search again, and often the book elves will somehow have magically added the book to the system.

Catt is right - it's sort of like giving a search and rescue dog a scent to follow.  It just takes giving it the ISBN and letting it go find it.
