How do I port a number to my existing Optus account so I can share data?

I currently have my phone and son's phone on optus plans.  Both are linked together and can share data.  I am now wanting to link my daughters phone to my/our plan as well.  She is currently with another service provider and has her own device.  Is it possible to purchase a optus sim / port her number and link to my account?


Your asssistance would be greatly appreciated.
