I had a similar issue and the two things I found that might help is number 1 check the screen in the shower head and the shower head diverting knob/lever/switch. And number 2 is that there may pin hole leaks to check for in the piping.

Diverter Valve or obstructionFor a pressure loss in both shower head and faucet, check the diverter valve (usually a little pull-up knob at the end of the bath tub spout, or a valve in the wall between the tub and the shower head).

If you have a hot/cold mixing valve, the mixing valve may be defective.

Other possibilities are any obstruction such as a bent or crimped water line leading to the faucet, or algae and other unpleasant things growing in the line.

Hot water supply line may need to be increased in size for all fixtures.

How do you fit a second tank in tandem to increase the hot water pressure?

Another tank will do nothing to increase the pressure. If it is city water, the pressure is regulated at themeter. The only thing that could increase it is to increase the size pipe supplying the fixtures. There is probably 3/4 inch coming into the house and it reduces to 1/2. The slight increase would probably not be worth the expense of doing. The pressure is still going to be the same, just more volume.
