Log into your server via SSH

umount /data

mkdir /home2

edit your /etc/fstab and change the line /data and put /home2 be sure to enable the quotas (make it look the same as your primary home partition)


mount /home2

In /etc/wwwacct.conf, make sure to set HOMEMATCH to 'home' (no slash). cPanel will automatically provision to whatever /home* folder has the most space available. If you only want it to provision on /home3, set HOMEDIR to /home3 and blank out the HOMEMATCH directive.

You can use the rearrange accounts function in WHM. There's a way to do it manually from command line as well.
