You would add new brokers to the cluster, and then do a partition
reassignment to move some partitions to the new broker.

In the simplest example:

Say you have 1 topic with 3 partitions.

partition 0: brokers: 1,2
partition 1: brokers: 2,3
partition 2: brokers: 3,1

If you added 3 more brokers, you could do a reassignment so it is:

partition 0: brokers: 1,2
partition 1: brokers: 3,4
partition 2: brokers: 5,6

Which could be done with the following partition reassignment json:

             {"topic": "test", "partition": 0, "replicas": [1,2] },
             {"topic": "test", "partition": 1, "replicas": [3,4] },
             {"topic": "test", "partition": 2, "replicas": [5,6] }
  ], "version":1

/usr/local/bin/kafka-reassign-partitions --execute --reassignment-json-file
reassignment.json --throttle 80000000
and remember to verify:
/usr/local/bin/kafka-reassign-partitions --verify --reassignment-json-file

In reality you'd have multiple topics and probably many partitions, but the
principle is the same.
