This is a crude first cut at implementing it:

(defadvice describe-function (after related activate compile)
  (let ((related (get (ad-get-arg 0) :related)))
    (when related
      (with-current-buffer (get-buffer "*Help*")
        (let ((buffer-read-only nil)
              (inhibit-changing-match-data t))
          (goto-char (point-max))
          (re-search-backward "\\[back\\]")
          (insert (format "Related: %s\n\n" related)))))))

though, if you want to allow related to be a list, or the inserted
function names to be links, you'll have to dig deeper.
