Can you add synthetics and robots as NPCs to your party?

Not as player characters, but there may be Controllable NPC's and followers that you can recruit in a variety of methods. Reliant on Charisma.

I believe, there's one a broken one at Abandoned Railway, but I believe it's bugged and can't be recruited in the current beta.

There's also a robot that can be repaired with CompSci and it follows you around and helps in battle.

In the same area there's also a companion who is a cyborg, he has bionic arms and implants, but he's still mostly human.

It was until you moved it! Or, uh, until one of the other Mods moved it, anyway. ;)

That aside, I would guess that we'll probably see at least one real Synth companion once the player gets to the California area. I have to imagine that with the major role that Synths play in the main storyline, that we'll probably run into at least one or two who are sympathetic to the Rangers' cause. Or maybe we'll be able to recruit one if we ultimately turn on the Rangers and join the Synths in their quest for domination.
