what i meant was if i can add these ingredients after the broth is done, so that i can have a complete meal as opposed to just bone broth

Surely you could cook ANY veg in bone broth and when soft, puree with a stick blender?

I love cooking sliced leeks, carrots (matchstick) and daikon with the bones in a pressure cooker for a few hours. It makes everything super soft and mellow. You can try getting some super thin cuts of beef (like the kind used for chinese hot pot and cooking that in the broth for an additional hour to make it super soft and melt in your mouth tender.

I also love fish soup and its super soft -- you can make a bone stock with the heads/bones and then add in the flesh in manageable bites with some soft stewed tomatoes.

Egg drop soup is another option -- just swirl in some eggs in the hot broth and you're good to go!

i like adding sweet potatoes, carrots & onion/garlic, stuff like that, then a part of the first batch of broth gets blended with all the veggies & soft broth bits, its the most hearty soup

i couldn't see any reason to steam the carrots or cook anything before adding them to the broth, although i did read about burnt onions adding flavour, probably here, but you can bet it will all go soft, even the bone goes soft the longer you cook it

avocado just doesn't sound right for some reason but id love to be convinced otherwise, go for it ;)

I'll suggest konbu, it's a type of thick fleshy seaweed that stands well to prolonged simmering. Plus, great source of iodine, no need to worry about whether you're taking in enough on those days you're not having seafood.

Any veggies will cook down and be soft if they are in there for long enough. If you make a pot roast or pulled pork, you can shred it very finely so that it barely needs to be chewed.

Are you getting treatment for the TMJ? If not, myofascial therapy is the bomb for correcting the muscle issues that tweak your jaw and cause the TMJ to hurt.

You can add whatever you want after its done. But while its cooking, avocado and fish doesn't strike me as a good idea. I think it would dissolve or make it mushy don't you?
