A booster may or may not help. More than likely the reason that it gets next to no heat is because of the way the duct is run. You have to use a variable speed motor controller for a motor (looks just like a dimmer). I would check to see how the 6" duct is hooked to the main trunk, you may just be able to move it to a better location on main trunk where the air blows into it more directly. Or you may be able to put an "angle" takeoff where the 6" hooks to the main trunk to let the air flow more freely into it. If you install a booster fan, you will have to run it, if you don't then you will get even less air because of the fan obstructing the pipe. Booster fans also tend to accumulate a lot of dust build-up on them in a short period of time. I would check out the layout of the duct system first, it would be a cheaper, permanant fix and have no maintenance.
