I currently have a website hosted on myUserName.github.io. I found out that I can add a new page to it by pushing another repository to its gh-pages branch, but I am not sure how to do this exactly since I am dealing with two different repositories.

If I have a repository named "test", how do I add this my website so I have myUserName.github.io/test?

I'm not sure what you exactly want. Github Pages explicitly hosts websites based on Jekyll and is unable to help you in hosting any other kind of backend. If you want to have a website for other purposes and not built out of Jekyll, you need to find somewhere else.

If you just want to add a new page via Jekyll, see their Guides
