Can you not just plot the histogram and then the main plot?

Something like this, although it is a barplot rather than a histogram.

Hours <- c(0,1,2,3,4,5)

Nam <- c( "alf", "bet", "cet", "det", NA , fet)
 En <- c(5, 7, 8, 9, NA, 9)
 L1 <- c(10, 9, 7, 5, 3 ,6)
 L2 <- c(7, 4, 3, 2, 5, 7)
 
 

  MyLabels <- seq(200, 500, length=13)  

 mp <-barplot(En)  

# adjust margins to accommodate titles and labels especially the 4 axis label.
par(mar=c(5,5,5,5))  

 barplot(En, ylim=c(0, 12),axes =FALSE, ann=FALSE, xlab="Hours", ylab="Volume", col.lab="blue")  points (mp,L1, type="p", pch=19, col = "red")  points (mp,L2, type = "l", col="blue")
 axis ( 2, 0:12, las=1, font=2)
 axis (3, at=1:6, tick =F, labels =c( "alf", "bet", "cet", "det", NA , "fet"))
 axis (4, at = 0:12, labels = MyLabels, font=2)  mtext("Number of Units Detected", 4,
line=3,col="blue")
 title ( main="A combined line and bar chart \n with different x-axis labels", line=3,

       font=3, col.main="blue")
 box()
