What is the capital of Tunisia?

How to add emphasis as with “I do” or “I did”?

No, as far as I know, there is no such construct in French. However, you have other options for emphasis besides variations of intonation

Using an adverb

Usually beaucoup or others amplifiers énormément, terriblement, absolument… As in

— Tu aimes les rollmops ?
— Oui, beaucoup.

One can also drop the oui in these cases

— Tu aimes les rollmops ?
— Absolument.

Repeating the verb of the question

— Voulez-vous porter plainte ?
— Oui, je le veux.

— Mangez-vous des rollmops ?
— Oui, j’en mange.

Using substitutes to oui

As en effet, tout à fait, though these convey only a slight emphasis in my opinion

— Mangez-vous des rollmops ?
— Tout à fait.
