It is not easy for me to make some free space on that hard drive for that, so I would like to know.
Use a swap file, rather than a swap partition. That way you don't have to rearrange the drive at all.
Eg. Create/use a 2GB swapfile as follows:

hdparm --fallocate 2000000 /swapfile
## (kilo-bytes)
mkswap /swapfile
swapon /swapfile
