Photos for macOS has the ability to manually tag People in a photo where the machine learning algorithm has not yet detected a Face:

Window > Info > Add Faces > Click to Name

Click to Name

These tagged photos then show up when selecting a Person from the People Album in iCloud Photos, just as if they had been recognized by the ML algorithms.

How can I similarly manually tag People/Faces in a photo from the iOS Photos app?

You cannot manually tag a face in the current version of iOS.

This function is only available on macOS.
