In addition to band assisted pull ups, you can start at the top and lower yourself as slowly as possible, as many times as possible. You'll be sore as hell but over time you'll develop more strength. Since you can do one pull up, do that then move to the other. Soon, you'll be able to do two.

Also body rows. Basically you need to schedule frequent volume that strengthens your upper back. Getting from 1 pull up to 2 is really difficult. You are trying to turn a 1-rep-max into a 2-rep-max. With lifting you can lower the weight and increase volume. But it takes more creativity for pull-ups.

Best way is highly individualized and has many variables.
Usually performing a well rounded resistance training program with a variety of rep ranges and appropriate intensity would be a good start.
It might involve losing more weight if obese depending on the individual as well.

Don't forget to do the hanging scapula shrugs! Very important if you want to keep good form

Just warmup properly. Doing lots of small shoulder work in advance. One of the several times I tore my rotator cuff was by doing pullups. Went into a gym during my weight loss years ago and tried to do like sets of 5 pullups cold and tore my rotator cuff. Took months of rehab and a huge fitness setback at that time.
