You partitions appear to be ordered on the disk thusly:
/, swap, /tmp, /var, /usr, /home
Because of this, you can't repartition /var and /home without also
repartitioning /usr. At that point, you're almost reinstalling.
What you'd have to do is back up /var, /usr, and /home, then repartition
those three, and then restore to the new /var, /usr, /home.
You could always symlink the directory in /home to some location on
/var to get most of what you want. See 'man ln'.
