How can i apply a load on a RC shear wall in order to represent the loading from stone veneer/cladding on an rc shear wall or a rc column?

Simply insert the force as a USER LOAD on the structural member.
In particular, you can assign a load type as "permanent" and apply:

- column: a linear force type.
- shear wall: a superficial load
