is it a own lv or is it just a directory on a lv?

Extend the logical volume /usr is on. Partition your new hard disk,
make a partition a physical volume (pvcreate), extend your volume
group (vgextend) , extend your logical volume (lvextend) and resize the
file system. Done. That's what LVM is good for ;-)

just one device to a mount point. However, xou can mount the new lv to
a subdirectory of /usr - but the better (and LVM compliant) way is to
extend your existing lv.
