Since my ability to program in C is basically non-existent, there's no danger of me writing custom PostgreSQL C code anytime soon.
Maybe someday when I retire I'll take up C coding to keep my mind nimble.
So increasing parallelization it is.

There is no support for that.
If you know what you are doing, you might be able to mess with the catalog tables,
but you would probably need server C code for that, since you cannot normally
write to an "anyarray".
I wouldn't recommend to go that way.

Run the ANALYZE in many parallel sessions. I cannot think of anything smarter.
