I was doing a combination with a queen less hive and taking brood frames from another hive and noticed the hive I was taking brood frames from is just packed with bees. I'm thinking I should add another hive box for honey or should it be for brood?

need more details and maybe pictures.  remember that all the brood you are taking is thousands of bees that won't be there soon.
is there still a flow on up there?  if so you could probably go ahead and super them.

A week ago I took two large super of honey off this hive and they filled them again not sure what they r bringing in but something is blooming. Honey harvest was odd the first harvest was dark honey this last harvest was very light a tasted like clover/flowery

If you add it they will do what they want to with it, unless you run excluders.
