So, when driving in a traffic jam, I feel like I constantly need to lift my foot up. It never feels balanced.
The brakes too, I feel so little resistance in pushing the pedal to where the brakes start gripping.

Is there a way to adjust a spring setting, or make it feel heavier (meaning, needing me to press the pedal down a bit harder to get it in the same position)?

No, I want a stiffer accelerator pedal.
The brake pedal is ok, although a stiffer brake pedal might be a good thing too.
actually I find the brake pedal a bit too responsive.
But the accelerator, my shinbone muscles are getting sore from having to keep my foot halfway up.
At one time I blew my brake lines, because of putting too much pressure on the brakes in an emergency brake situation.

Did you try adjusting your seat?
Yes, it's already as far down as possible.
The only way is to bring it further back, which will help the issue, however, I would be sitting too far away from my steering wheel for comfort.
I prefer to sit at the right distance (I already feel, despite the telescopic function, my steering wheel is too far away).

The mechanism doesn't seem to be adjustable.
My uncle would just drill a hole in the pedal, and add a spring to it, mount it above somewhere.
He's done things like this on a volkswagen beetle, and I would have agreed, if it wasn't for the fact that the stock accelerator looks like it's made out of PLASTIC!
Really... Plastic!
