Firstly store separately the datetime string and the offset you want to add to the datetime:

date_time_str = '2019-10-18 11:46:08 '
offset = '5 hour 5 second'

Parse the datetime and offset strings:

dt = datetime.datetime.strptime(date_time_str ,'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S ')
offset = datetime.datetime.strptime(offset, '%H hour %S second')

Add the offset to the datetime as a timedelta:

dt + datetime.timedelta(hours=offset.hour, seconds=offset.second)
# datetime.datetime(2019, 10, 18, 16, 46, 13)
