I don't think there is any boom arm add-on exist for regular light stands. The boom arms are usually attached to a light stands. Those light stands are much sturdier, because they must handle forces better than the regular stands. There is a Baby Boom arm thing from Alien Bee, but that thing is only about a foot long. If you have two light stands, you can get a backdrop holder. You may attach each end to a lightstand, place light on horizontal part. To balance that setup may take a lot longer than to adjust a boom that was made for this type of situations.
