When adding additional line items to a form, I assume you are referring to a table within a from (e.g., InfoPath allows a table within a form: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath-help/insert-a-repeating-table-HP010080916.aspx)

The qListForm does not have embedded tables within it so you can't add additional line items to a qListForm.  A work around or an alternative technique is to use a parent/child approach with two different web parts.  For example, say you have a customer displayed in qListForm and you want to add contacts (rows).  You could setup a customer using qListForm on a page and under it put a qListView on the same page to show the contacts.  The contacts table would have a column (e.g., CustomerListID) which links it back to the customer (parent).  When you click "New" Contact, the CustomerListID could be configured to be filled in automatically through a session variable.  This approach shows two parts on the page: 1) qListForm on top and 2) underneath qListView which is filtered based on a web part connection on CustomerListID.

If you want to show the two web parts as a single web part, one approach customers take is to use the freeware "EasyTabs" which you can review and download here: http://sp2010.pathtosharepoint.com/sharepoint-user-toolkit/Pages/Easy-Tabs-v5.aspx.  Easytabs, puts all of the web parts on a page into a single, tabbed web part.

I hope this helps solve the rows in a form use case.
