Adding Discord Friends from PC
Firstly, go to the "Friends" option in the main menu and then select "Add friend" in the upper right corner:
Next, you'll need to enter the Discord Tag of the friend you want to add, and then press "Send Friend Request":
The Discord Tag is basically the username added with a "#", followed by a 4-digit code. The Tag is always visible at the bottom left of Discord's main menu:
After the person accepts the invitation, you will have them added as a friend.
Adding friends through profile
You can also add anyone who is on the same server as you. To do this, simply click on the desired user (on any chat or server) and then click on their profile picture:
On the next screen, just select "Send friend request" and wait for acceptance:

Adding mobile friends via Nearby
The last way to add friends on Discord is via Nearby. The tool is aimed at Android and iOS and allows you to find users close to your location, but only those who also have the function turned on in their application.
To activate Nearby, select the Friends menu in the upper left corner of the screen, then choose the icon shown below:
On the next screen, select "Start Nearby Search":
The app will ask for some permissions from your device and then search for users near your location. You can also turn off the search at any time by pressing the "Turn Off Nearby Search" button that will appear on the same screen.
Know that the range of this tool is only 10 meters, so it is basically aimed at finding people who already know each other and want to add each other through Nearby.
