Something like

rewrite ^(.*)$ $1?$args&ra=$remote_addr? break;

should work. Note that it might look odd if there was no original
query string.

Also note - common practice on the web seems to be that the order of
key=value pairs in the query string is unpredictable; you may be happier
if you change your back-end to not care about the order (if you want
random web browsers to work with your application).

If a replacement string includes the new request arguments, the previous
request arguments are appended after them.

Not easily, this way.

For that, you probably want either to use one of the embedded languages
to manipulate things; or to use the module referenced in the other reply.
