Dynamics of Phoneme Addition

I'm wondering if there are any rules or at least trends regarding
the dynamics by which one language would borrow phonemes from a
second language with which it is in contact - not just in loanwords
but even in native words. Can it happen willy-nilly or are there
general rules involved?
Any insight welcome!
