Do 2 syllable words ending with ed create 3 syllable words?

Sometimes, but only when the word would not be pronounceable without the extra syllable. After t or d, in English you can't have an immediately following t or d, so a vowel has to be inserted before the "-d" ending, and this new vowel produces an extra syllable.

How do you divide word mysterious into syllables?

The above in phonetic notation (using - for syllable division) is [mə-stɪɹ-i-əs]. There is another possibility, which is [mɪs-tʰɪɹ-i-əs], with [s] at the end of the first syllable causing the first vowel to be slightly different, and with t now at the beginning of its syllable aspirated (with a puff of air after it), since t must always be aspirated at the beginning of a syllable in English.
