Hot air basement heating

I have a gas, hotair heating system and am wanting to add one or two new heating registers in the basement family room area. There is only one near the floor on a wall nearest the furnace now. The heating system has two large square
ducts at top of basement ceilings running to different rooms upstairs.
How do i determine which of these ductworks to cut into? where to locate registers,returns,how many, what issues to consider,etc.
The family room is about 20x20 and the one register just doesn't do it . Don't know if the system needs balancing or what,but with the weather turning cooler now i thought i should do something now.
thanks

The best way is to cut takeoffs in the top of the trunk line in the joist. Run 6"round pipe to 12" off the outside walls and put a boot with a register on it blowing down . Two should work fine for you.
