I am almost done with my CV that I made using moderncv but there is a little extra that I need and it requires some advance tweaking that I am no able to perform although I think they should be possible.

I am using the casual style and I really need to be able to add a second title (title2) to the header as in this example (that I patched on Photoshop!)

example

Is there a way I can define a \title2{title2text} And renew \maketitle to include title2 to the right and title to the left?

Here's one way to do it:

\documentclass{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{casual}

\makeatletter
\newcommand*{\titleii}[1]{\def\@titleii{#1}}
\titleii{}
% commands
\renewcommand*{\makecvhead}{% TODO: use \@initializecommand, which requires modifying its definition to handle \par
  % recompute lengths (in case we are switching from letter to resume, or vice versa)
  \recomputecvlengths%
  % optional picture (pre-rendering)
  \@initializebox{\makecvheadpicturebox}%
  \savebox{\makecvheadpicturebox}{%
    \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@photo}}%
      {}%
      {%
       \setlength\fboxrule{\@photoframewidth}%
       \ifdim\@photoframewidth=0pt%
         \setlength{\fboxsep}{0pt}\fi%
       {\color{color1}\framebox{\includegraphics[width=\@photowidth]{\@photo}}}}}%
  % name (pre-rendering)
  \@initializelength{\makecvheadpicturewidth}%
  \settowidth{\makecvheadpicturewidth}{\usebox{\makecvheadpicturebox}}%
  \@initializebox{\makecvheadnamebox}%
  \savebox{\makecvheadnamebox}{%
    \parbox[b]{\textwidth-\makecvheadpicturewidth}{%
      \if@left\raggedright\fi%
      \if@right\raggedleft\fi%
      \namefont%
      \if@alternate% alternate design: first- and lastname in lowercase with no space in between (distinction is made by color difference)
        {\color{color2!50}\MakeLowercase\@firstname}{\color{color2}\MakeLowercase\@lastname}%
      \else% default design: first- and lastname as given with a space in between
        {\color{color2!50}\@firstname} {\color{color2}\@lastname}\fi}}%
  % rendering
  \if@left%
    \usebox{\makecvheadnamebox}%
    \usebox{\makecvheadpicturebox}\fi
  \if@right%
    \usebox{\makecvheadpicturebox}%
    \usebox{\makecvheadnamebox}\fi\\[-.35em]%
