I have the attached 1.jpg YELLOW field setup as "Can Grow" which causes it to overlap the column below it called "Ship Via" and displays like the attached 2.jpg

How can I prevent the overlapping issue without having to do the below ?
  Option #1 = create another "Report Header" section
  Option #2 = create a subreport and setup report linking

You probably don't want to hear this, but you either need to make the font smaller, or the field wider.  The "Can Grow" option is great for detail sections, but on headers like this, if you don't put the grow-able item in a section by itself, it's going to overlay.

Add an empty textbox below the Terms of delivery heading.
Drag the Delivery terms field into it. Press Enter to go to a new line.
Type 'Ship Via' (as the next heading) and click Enter to go to a new line.
Drag the Ship via field into the textbox .

Check the textbox property for  Can Grow.

To follow on Jay's comment

Right click the report header a in the left margin
CLick INSERT SECTION BELOW
Move the fields that are below the growing field to the new section \.
Shorten the section so it fits the bottom of the field.

Or if you click and hold next to the vertical ruler section then move slightly, a new section break will be added where you click.  See screen shot.
