comment How can I add a circuit breaker when there are no openings available in the neutral bus bar?
@Michael - So with this new 20 amp breaker I am adding using a AWG12 cable, shall I have to wire nut the same size of ground wires? Since you said my panel is capable of lugging more than one (1) wire, could I just join two(2) ground wires in one lug as along as they are the same size? Why can't you join wires of different sizes? Thanks again.

@Michael - I plan to remove 2-3 ground wires from their existing lugs on the bus bar to open up spaces. Then hook up the new neutral wire to one lug. Then wire nut the ground wires and pigtailed to the remaining lug/s. In this case, I have put the new neutral wire in one seperate lug. Is this okay. In addition, I checked the door of the main panel and found out about wiring on the bus terminal screws. It says that it allows wiring one (1) #14-4 wires or 2-3 #14-10 wires per terminal screws. Please tell me what this means? Thank you.
