Thank you for the clarification. Before you begin, do you know where this Mayflower traveler fits into your tree? Very important. It won't matter if you find her/him and can't tie him/her to your tree. It won't help if you just add her/him not linked to your tree.
1.First search for that name in Family Tree. Likely if your ancestor was on the Mayflower, someone has already entered him into Family Tree.
While signed in to FamlySearch.org, click Search on the upper left bar.
Click the tab for the kind of search you want to use:
Put as much information as you can in the Discover your Deceased Ancestors.
Then a search window will open up. You may need to add birth dates, where born, wife or children.
If one of them is your Mayflower traveler, and you know where he fits.
You can copy the ID number of the person like: MTWG-000 under his/her name in the search page.
Then you can go to where her/him fits into your ancestors and add him by name or ID number.
If we need more information to help, reply to this message with the new information. 😀
Have you, found this "Relative", who came over on the "Mayflower", through:
(1) your normal "Research"?
(2) one of the "E-mail" Messages from 'FamilySearch' relative to one of the "Campaigns"?
(3) some other way [eg. (BYU) "RelativeFinder"]
The reason I ask is that ...
IF, it was through the aforementioned; THEN, ...
(1) normal research: Just add them as normal.
(2) campaign: It is most likely that are ALREADY connected/linked to you.
(3) especially, through (BYU) "RelativeFinder": As per (2) above.
Just my thoughts.

(1) How to add a relative who came over on the Mayflower to my tree
(2) Enter a relative who came over on the Mayflower to my tree
all of the people who came over in the Mayflower - are already in FamilySearch
you simply need to ensure that there are no missing links between you and that person.
There is no need to add a new Pilgrim to FamilySearch form the Mayflower - they are already in FamilyTree to begin with.
do you know all the generations between YOU and that Pilgrim ancestor?
if so - trace that line back in FamilyTree - and see if all the links are indeed made.
I don't know the number of generations between me and my ancestor. I do know the Mayflower sailed in 1620
but which Mayflower person are you referring to?

I am sorry, I did not get back earlier ...
The "Border" in the state, north of us, OPENED to us, without having to 'Quarantine' (and, PAY for it ourselves); and, we took the opportunity to drive up there, to see our Children and Grandchildren, who we have not been with for about 12 Months, BEFORE that state COLSES the "Border" again - re: "COVID-19" .
As an aside ...
This may (in fact, should) help you 'see' the (any) actual link/connection between, you; and, the "Mayflower" Ancestor you are aware of ...
Just a thought ...
IF, you have not already; THEN, ...
You can always try (BYU) "RelativeFinder".
(BYU) "RelativeFinder" digs (pun intended) a lot DEEPER in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch', than 'FamilySearch' does.
(BYU) "RelativeFinder" is one of the "Third Party" Applications that "Certified" to work with "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
BYU = Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah, USA (ie. the Church University).
From the "Family History Technology Laboratory", of the "Computer Science" Department.
Here is direct link to "RelativeFibder"
Apart from the "Important" people (including those from the "Mayflower"), from "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch', that can be found in (BYU) "RelativeFinder", that may be connected/linked to you ...
And, there are specific 'Groups' ...
But, not limited to ...
▬ Mayflower Passengers
▬ Mayflower relative
And, more ...
There are also some other options ...
There is an option to see if there is a 'Connection' between yourself and a "Deceased" individual/person in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
There is an option to see if there is a 'Connection' between two (x2) "Deceased" individuals/person in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'
There is an option to see if there is a 'Connection' between ("Living" - Users/Patrons) Friends in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
Give it a go ...
There are many 'Bells and Whistles' that you might find useful in "RelativeFinder".
And, just for some 'light' bedtime reading ...
