Why do you want to add resolution? At each step, Geant4 gives a deposited energy that is drawn from the appropriate distribution - the Landau distribution - for that particle in that material. So its distribution - with some addition, perhaps, for electronic readout noise - should match your observed distribution.

You should think of the addition of electronic readout noise as a separate step, nothing to do with Geant4. It is often referred to as "digitisation". Geant4 just does the physics.
