So, what we need is some way to artificially increase the force of gravity. I can see 3 possibilities. One is to have some form of artificial gravity directed at the center of the planet pushing all the hydrogen towards the center. This would have to be maintained constantly in order to keep it burning, or else it would expand again, as I mentioned above.
Folks, I don't think we, Earthlings, need an additional star. A new star - a gravitationally increased Saturn - at that position would cause a mess in the orbits of the rest of the bodies of the system. Not to mention the increased radiation, what we absolutely don't want.
But it could be useful for a colony located in the outskirts of the system.
So, my suggestion: wait until the Sun runs out of fuel, then light up Saturn for heating us in a new home in a moon of Uranus, Neptune or the like.
