I was wondering if I could take my one computer with two sticks at 1.9V and add 1 or 2 more with a different voltage?

My motherboard is a Biostar A770.

Nope - all of the sockets run at the same voltage - so mixing different voltage modules is not a good idea !! (it might work if the specific modules you get are capable of running at the different voltage but doing so could either cause instability (if you undervolt them and the need more voltage) or burn the module (if you overvolt the module and it can not handle the extra voltage) - so while it may work it is not a good idea to try.
