Hi I have a js script that needs to be included after a specific js script.

function wpb_adding_scripts() {
wp_register_script('egovt-add-js',get_stylesheet_directory_uri(). '/add.js','','1.1', true);
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'wpb_adding_scripts' );

This add.js file is included, but not in the positions that I need, I need it to be after another js file, named first.js (for ex.)

That's part of the default functionality available in wp_enqueue_script/wp_register_script.
The third argument, as seen in the official documentation of enqueue/register script, https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/wp_enqueue_script/, https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/wp_register_script/, is the dependencies array.

$deps string[] Optional
An array of registered script handles this script depends on. Default: array()

So lets say you have script with the handle "sliderjs", using your code it would look like this

function wpb_adding_scripts() {
    wp_register_script('egovt-add-js', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/add.js', ['sliderjs'],'1.1', true);
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'wpb_adding_scripts' );

// A multi line arguments example
    get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/add.js',
    ['sliderjs'], // <- this is the dependencies arrray
