I have a house constructed in 1991 with 5 feet foundation. It is not a pillar foundation. It is conventional stone foundation with 5 feet depth. Kindly inform if I can construct 2 floors in this building. It is presently having a ground floor and a first floor.

You can go ahead but take more help from a structural engineer and an architect. 
You can add columns to your existing building to avoid load issues and it will increase its life as well.

Dear Sir
         In my opinion if you take help from any civil engineer or structural engineer, who can inspect the foundation at site and can be able to give the advice for further construction.
