I'm often stuck with how to use "a bit more" in Chinese in situations like :

Verb + something + a bit more

I want to watch TV a bit more

I want to eat spicy noodles a bit more

I want to have a longer walk on the beach

I plan on listening to more music

Can you speak a bit slower ? (I know this one 漫说一点)

I know you can say, for instance : 多吃. (I'm not sure but I think I could also say 多吃一点) But how would you say "Eat more of something" 多吃那个一点 ?

Nobody taught me this and the problem I have is not with 多/少 before the verb, it is about the grammatical order of the sentence and the words to use if there is something / a direct object complement after the verb.

What's the order ? Should I only use 我把这个多吃 ? Are they any other alternatives ?

I take the opportunity to ask as well how to say:

Doing + something + too much

Verb + something + 太多 /or/ Verb + 太多 + something ?
