pvcreate first, then vgextend to add.

And then lvresize for one or both of those to get the size he wants them. And then resize2fs to resize the file systems.

But I think he didn't want a new /home on /dev/sdb, I think he wanted the /home he had on /dev/sda but I could be mistaken. I'm not clear on the exact final layout the OP wants.
