To answer your literal question: "Specifically, is it practically possible to increase the difficulty of someone with knowledge of $\rm pass1$ to derive $\rm pass2$ to be more than the difficulty of guessing $\rm password$ itself, even if it requires spending portions of available $\rm password$ entropy?" The answer is "no". To see why, observe that, ...

You want a pair of functions $(f_1,f_2)$ from a set $S$ of possible passphrases to a key set $K$, that is $f_1,f_2: S \rightarrow K$. The functions are public, in the sense that they can be computed by anyone. Your security goal is that the cost of finding $f_2(pw)$, knowing $f_1(pw)$, should be roughly as expensive as finding $f_2(pw)$ by searching for ...
