In theory both approaches might be possible ... but from my reading of weight gain fiction, I haven't seen any I found convincing.

We know fictional characters in books, movies or TV shows all too well, they have their own voice ... capturing that, re-writing a story with weight-gain as a new element and maintaining the authenticity of the original story context is incredibly difficult.

Take the Hermione Granger example - JK Rowling's Harry Potter cosmos is pretty fat phobic ... so making one of the leading characters fat would either mean changing the whole frame of the story .... or completely changing the character's role in the story, personality, etc.

Doing that while keeping the charm of the original is almost impossible .... and probably not worth the effort.
Developing a new story line of your own is a better use of energy and imagination!
