I've never tried but I'm curious. Let's say I created a 32-point halfling rogue. Then, I decide to add barbarian too. How can I do this?

Earn another level then talk to a barb trainer to gain a barb level.

So. Can I do Rogue1/Barbarian1 or Rogue2/Barbarian1?

Yes. Every time you earn a level you can decide in which class you take that level. So you can create anything from a Rogue19/Barb1 to Rogue1/Barb19. Just talk to the appropriate trainer when you earned a level.
But make sure you know what you're doing. Think about which class and how many levels of it to splash.

Note: DDO limits you to a maximum of three different classes. E.g. you could build a Rogue1/Ranger1/Barb1 but not a Rogue1/Ranger1/Barb1/Fighter1

For each level you gain, you can pick which class to level in, up to a limit of 3. So at level 2 you would be a Rogue 1/ barbarian 1 and at level 3 you could be a Rogue 2/ Barbarian 1, a Barbarian 2/ Rogue 1, or even a Rogue 1/ Barbarian 1/ Ranger 1.

Now you don't want to do this without a plan. Look at what each level of your classes gives you and see what you gain and what you loose. For Rogue/ Barbarians, it's usually 1 or 2 levels of Barbarian for Martial Weapons, hp and a Rage or 2 with the rest Rogue or 2 levels of Rogue for Evasion and a few Rogue skills(OL and UMD) to go with 18 levels of Barbarian. Rogue 13/ Ranger 6/ Barbarian 1 or Barbiarian 12/ Ranger 6/ Rogue 2 also have their fans.

Just one more thing: some classes have alignment restrictions. Barbarians and bards must be non-lawful, monks must be lawful, paladins must be lawful good. If your character doesn't match alignment requirements, you won't be able to multiclass to those classes.

Be very careful when multi-classing.

You get some short term gain but it may bite you in the pants down the track.

I sat down and designed a Bard/Fighter/Rogue (endpoint is 16/2/2). He's at 13/2/2 and his DPS is better than expected. Rogue skills & UMD where I thought they would be BUT his healing is really bad.

Given I originally thought he could be a secondary healer this has been an unpleasant suprise.

I'm going to respec his enhancements totally towards DPS/Buff and just scroll heal off-combat (except for self healing).

If you are going to multi really consider the consequences all the way to L20.
