You can't graft a rose onto a tree, but you can train a rose into a tree form by staking the main stem upright and removing all the other canes. Or, you can purchase rose rootstock and graft a hybrid tea rose to the rootstock. The process takes some expertise and the right growing conditions so it may be much easier for you to purchase a tree rose rather than try to make one yourself. Best wishes with your garden!
