Divide Room With Only One Register

Hi, my second floor is one large bedroom that I plan to divide with a wall. The main concern is the HVAC: there is only one hot air register (in the floor) and one return (on the wall).

The hot air register is centrally located and could be split to feed both rooms I suppose. But there's no way I can see to get a cold air return into the new room - which is on the opposite side of the house from the existing return.

I am sure there's concerns about splitting the register. Air flow is already inadequate. Also there's sound proofing concerns between the rooms if any sort of air sharing is done.

If we split the register, it would probably be done by converting the existing floor register into a flexible duct and then extending it.

I assume whatever we do, some baseboard heat supplement will be involved.

I am not a contractor. I am open to suggestion. Thanks.
