<apex:page standardController="ELA_Checklist__c" extensions="Extent_ELA_Checklist" >

5) Add a reference the field created in step #3 , e.g.:
<apex:outputPanel layout="inline" rendered="{!XXXXXXX}" >....

6) Override "New" and "Edit" actions from the custom object created with the Visualforce page created in step #4;
