I had to repackage an item with a much sturdier box the box & extra packaging materials end up making the package weigh about a pound more than I printed the label for. Any way to add postage from ebay or PayPal shipping labels & stick it on the box or do I need to go to the post office & add extra postage OR should I void the whole label & reprint with the right dimensions & weight> Thanks

I would void the label. The PO people get real confused when you bring in an package that you paid for online. The online rate is lower than what they charge so the additional postage they want to charge you would be higher than you expect.

You cannot add postage thru eBay or PayPal.
You can buy the extra postage at the post office.
You should just void the label and print a new one.

You have got to void the label OR take the box to the PO and pay the difference there for additional postage. Your label already says your weight ( that will cover how much you have spent) the additional 1-2 lbs will just need to be paid there. If you void the label your money will be tied up for 14 -21 days until refunded.
