If so how? I have been googling and trying to search but I am unable to find anything. Has anyone done this? I need to add length and some volume to my RPG Show Glueless full lace unit. TIA

Yep, its possible. I somewhat followed Rhocdavegan's tutorial on  youtube on adding tracks to wigs on glue-less unit  when it started thinning.At the bottom I made sure the  weft could still be hid in a high ponytail and made a really neat part to sew on. To keep the parted area straight I pinned the weft to mannequin head then proceeded to sew with clear thread. The higher up pieces were done the same but they were done in more of a "u/v" shape so they could also be pulled up, leaving about an 1 1/2"area in the front that is not tracked up until the ear area  sort of.Hope that last bit made sense.

If you're into going all the way down the middle with your part (pigtail style) Then I would suggest parting first, sew the track up until the part nearly, do the same on the other-side ,but leave enough hair to cover them when parted and make a clip in piece to cover the small area that wasnt tracked.

Hope that all made sense and helps.  Mostly  my knowledge is a mix of info from Rhocdavegan's video on adding fullness and MissBossyLive's video on how to do a high ponytail sew in pattern.

Oh, yeah.  Have done it a LOT.  I prefer hand tied wefts, though.. or split tracks.  I've tried skin wefts, too,  but with less success.  Placement is really critical, though.. and filling in the crown is just about impossible, IMHO.

Yes, I've done it. I started by making a horizontal part slightly above the hairline @ the nape of the neck. Then I added a track in by stitching it onto the cap. Then I just repeated the same thing as I made my way up towards the crown of the wig. 

I like the way it came out, but it still wasn't long enough for my taste. I was a loser & cut the length of the unit when I first received it.. & then later decided I wanted that length back so that's why I added tracks lol. I ended up just buying a new unit & promising myself to never cut it. 

Adding the tracks was tedious for me.. but I've never worn a weave or sewed in a weave before, so the process was completely new for me.
