How do you strengthen and weaken hydrogen bonds in water aside from changing its temperature? Could you add any solutes to do so?

Look at surface tensions of aqueous solutions; also, see clathrates.

In regards to the surface tension, do you suggest that I find an aqueous solution with weak and strong surface tension and mix it with water to strenghthen or weaken it?

You asked about solute possibilities; if you look at surface tensions of aqueous solutions, you will find that some solutes increase surface tension and that others decrease it.
