I am a conjunction but with extra tea,

Good company to a wheeze and a pant,

I am one over a large key that locks,

And I think my head is on fire!

What am I?

Cigarette Butt (Addictive)

I am a conjunction but with extra tea,

Butt (Conjunction But with extra t)

Good company to a wheeze and a pant,

Smoking causes wheezing and panting.

OP:

"Puff" - a synonym of cigarette

I am one over a large key that locks,

It filters the smoke.

OP:

Above a Caps Lock (a large keyboard key) is a "Tab" - another synonym

And I think my head is on fire!

Cigarette lit up.

because:

I am a conjunction but with extra tea,
Good company to a wheeze and a pant

could means

the conjunction of two gasses (pant and wheeze meanings "breath") in a "T" conjuction ("tea" is pronounced as "T")

The key that locks is
