In brief: Sleep

You can determine your sleep architecture by doing a sleep study and if you are deficient in any stage then you can seek to fix it.

In brief: Why do that?

Why would you do that? There are certain medicines that increase rem sleep or slow wave sleep (deep sleep), but there is no advantage to doing that.
There is no evidence that increasing the amount of rem sleep or slow wave sleep is helpful in any way.
