To anyone who can help,

Thanks in advance,

If development of such tool is easy, then yes, there is an easy way getting that done
If you describe more about your type of text (DTEXT, MTEXT, dimension-text, block-attribute-text, LEADER-text, ...) and do these text-objects have some prefix or suffix, .... or when you upload a drawing maybe someone does it for you.

Please try attached routine.
Settings as below:
You can search from left or right depending on what text string structure it is.
The text was a mix of DTEXT and MTEXT with 2 decimal places, all the text had numerical values only. I found a lisp that ended up doing what i wanted.
Here it is for future reference. Thanks for replying.
(defun c:addn ( / ss)
(if (and (setq ss (ssget "X" (list (cons 0 "*text"))))
(setq amt (getreal "\nPlease type the amount you would like to add: ")))
(mapcar '(lambda (z) (vla-put-textstring z (rtos (+ (atof (vla-get-textstring z)) amt) 2 3)))
(mapcar 'vlax-ename->vla-object (vl-remove-if 'listp (mapcar 'cadr (ssnamex ss)))))
EDIT: I missed that response ALTEXT is perfect! thank you so much.
