You do not have to, and officially you should not, add a coauthor just for the certificate/name they have. Proving competency is intrinsic to the paper you are writing, you do not need an external proof.

Publishing on a particular area does not require one to necessarily have a certificate in that area. However, if you find yourself to be inadequately equipped with the requisite knowledge to do a good job in that specific field, you may overcome that by collaborating with someone with that knowledge so that together you can bring out a very good and scientific work.
