I have not watched this but it should help. The process is very simple as you will see after installing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oXqzdHUH4A. I would suggest looking through the links below for more background and understanding of the process.

Yes, it needs the setup files because you ARE installing a new, side by side installation (instance) of SQL Server.

Did you watch the video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oXqzdHUH4A That shows you exactly how to add a "Named" Instance. The other links are for reference.

yes I watched that link. It shows a complete process simmilar to fresh sql server installation. And this needs to setup file, I think. There should be another process to create instance with less time.

If you already install one instance already.Insert the sqlserver cd and following the wizard. 1. The most important section of the installation process that address your problem is:Instance Configuration window. There you select the radio button that says:Name Instance. 2. You specify the name of your instance and continue to your configuration. 3. You can access your instance like this:Your pc name \yourinstancename 4. IF you have issue during login, you shall consider starting sqlserver browser service
