Is it that more amount of HGH and estrogen trigger a growth hormone?  Can we increase height by increasing the above two hormones?

Unless you have growth hormone deficiency and/or estrogen deficiency, taking these hormones will not signifiantly change your ultimate height.

What pituitary hormones cause the adrenal gland to produce mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, and androgens and estrogens including pregnenolone?

What pituitary hormones cause the adrenal gland to produce mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, and androgens and estrogens including pregnenolone?
