    So, in summary, underexposure and slight overdevelopment associated to rise in temperature while developing, is maybe the way to go.

    As scanning is part of my workflow (I don't have the benefits of having a darkroom), i will try scanning this negative in a different way in order to see an improvement in the quality of 'grain'.

    thanks for your comments !

    Or over expose and develop normally or extra.

    Normal B&W film is typically less grainy at lower exposure levels.

    Scanning is a different story, not going there.

    Depends on what grain we're talking about.. overexposure grain will have overall graininess over the entire photograph. Underexposure + overdevelop and post over-exposure (for correction) will result in any fog or low exposure areas revealing their grain as a result. I think the OP wants the latter.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
