Once you've had an additional hard drive/SSD etc add to your server and appropriately formatted it, you should then be able create a partition on that drive and set that as home2. Then just ensure that in WHM->Basic WebHost Manager Setup under "Basic Config" the setting " Additional home directories matching the following value will also be used for new home directory creations" is set to "home".

Once that's done, you can then rearrange accounts to move existing accounts onto that drive.

Accounts will continue to work on both drives/paritions/sections.
