Can you rephrase your question more clearly? What exactly are you really looking for? The reason for my request is because there's no such thing as a gravitational force transferring between anything.

If you add electrical charge to a body, you increase its electrostatic field strength.

If you add mass to a body, you increase its gravitational field strength.

But it's a very poor analogy.
