I have contracted a linux VPS and a domain (www.myproject.com). After that, in the same site from my user area, I have registered a pair of DNS (ns1.myproject.com and ns2.myproject.com) associating them to the VPS's IP.

Now I know I should add an A record, but.. could I do that from the terminal? or must I contract a control panel, for example Plesk?

If I can do it from the terminal, how can I do it?

Have you installed name server on your VPS? by the way you don't need to use your own name servers, most registrars allow you to use their name servers and then just add the A records. – Simon Hayter May 23 '13 at 11:21
