Just run SQL Server installation setup on the server and you will see an option something like 'new instance'.    It really is as simple as that.    You will need to restart the server after the install.  

You should make sure there are enough resources on the server to deal with another instance.   You should also throttle back the max memory setting in each SQL Server instances' properties.   Otherwise each instance will compete.  Also leave enough RAM free for the operating system.
