It cannot be done. You must use fastboot commands to flash a custom recovery first, then you can root from there

I'm not that familiar with dd commands but couldn't he use in a terminal

dd if=recovery.img of= recovery partition

You'd have to make sure you know the recovery partition precisely, there's a thread here some where, Google nexus 5 partitions xda

Ps, make sure you know the exact command because dd commands can be dangerous

Pss, looks like it should be

dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0pxx

Where xx= recovery partition

Cant see how that would work from within android without root.
