Well, no if you mean exactly what you ask.   
If you modify the size of the /usr partition (partition, not slice although
I suppose you could also have made a separate dedicated slice for /usr and 
just put the one partition in it), you will need to reinstall.

But, if you have extra space somewhere, you can create a swapfile there 
and have it added to your total swap space.   see man swapfile  --  which 
gets you the vnconfig(8) man page because that is how you do it.
