Create a s/w servo driver to add more. Balance them - ie same no of h/w and s/w on each side.
s/w servos may be less precise so use them for less load bearing legs (front legs?)

Assuming your are using Project Designer then just add the software servo driver and servos. In your own code where you use setSpeed to move the servo then it is identical - ie your code doesn't care whether its hardware or software
