I Need Serious Help With Stairs!

Hi! :D

I have 100 year old house with interesting stair problems.
We are renovating, and it seems when the old plaster and lathe come down, all the problems come to light.
We have a U shaped staircase with a large-ish landing that creates a problem for the floor below. The ceiling clearance is 6 1/2 feet! We have also discovered that the joists the landing is resting on are quite bowed. Can we add a winder set at the top of the first flight to reach the second level?
I have been trying different plans with an design program, but I just don't have enough know-how to plan a safe set.
any insight would be much appreciated!!!
(I can provide drawings if needed)
