Can someone let me know if it is possible to add
/tmp to Favorites on the Sidebar in Finder? If yes can someone provide me the steps?

While in Finder...
/privateand press enter.
Now preform one or the other of the following actions:
tmpfolder and press: controlcommandT
tmpfolder to Favorites in the Sidebar.
The first method places the folder at the bottom of the existing Favorites, whereas the second method allows one to drag it where one wants. It also can be dragged after the fact to change its position in the Favorites.
Both methods have been tested by me to work in OS X Mountain Lion, OS X El Capitan, macOS High Sierra and I see no immediate reason one or the other will not work in other versions of OS X/macOS that actually support this action.
You can do this in two easy steps:
Create a symlink (in your Home Folder for example) and then add that to your favorites
$ ln -s /private/tmp ~/Temp\ Folder
Then drag that folder to your Favorites in your sidebar.
