I've tried to add an address to the address book with

address_book add xxx yyy recipient

where xxx is the address, yyy the payment ID and recipient is a description for that address but the wallet ignores the payment ID and use yyy recipient as a description.

How can I add an address with a payment ID and a description to the address book?

The syntax is (see the emphasis):

address_book [(add (<address> [pid <long or short payment id>])|<integrated address> [<description possibly with whitespaces>])|(delete <index>)]

So you need to identify the payment id with pid - in your case it would look like:

address_book xxx pid yyy recipient
