In general, you can't add, remove, or change, any NewGRFs after starting a game, no.

You can try doing it by enabling the NewGRF developer tools, but it will most likely not work correctly, and only make your savegame unplayable. The reasons it can't work trace back to how games were constructed 25 years ago, and fixing it would be almost impossible.

You need to edit the config file with a hidden setting, info: https://wiki.openttd.org/NewGRF_Debuggi ... oper_tools

After that, relaunch the game (edit the file whilst the game is closed, else when you close OpenTTD later it may write the config file again), afterwards the settings button will now include 'NewGRF settings', select it.

save your game first, as this will, in a lot of circumstances, break it afterwards

Where "afterwards" may be anywhere from immediately to (game) decades or centuries later
Being a OpenTTD developer does not mean I know what I am doing.
Also, other OpenTTD developers may have different opinions.
