Offset Price by Date Overlay on Chart

Does anyone know if it would be possible to offset the price of a stock by a set number of days, weeks, etc and have that overlaid on the stock price chart?

For example, offset the stock price action of Tesla by 2 weeks and plot each point as a line chart instead of candle chart. I made a rough example using drawing lines to provide a more clear example - Example Figure (note this was a quick attempt at offsetting by ~2 weeks to demonstrate the idea, it's not exact).

If that is possible, would it be easy to make the capability modular so one could offset a 30min chart, 60min chart, daily, weekly, etc by a certain amount of time?

I'm relatively new to the ToS syntax so I'm struggling a bit to figure out if this is possible.

@PhillyEaglesS While indicators can be offset by bars/candles, the price data itself cannot... At least not that I am aware of...
I'm thinking of it as a study. My logic would be to grab the close price and then offset that by 2 weeks and plot that on the upper price chart. Not in essence move the existing price data, but copy the data and offset if that makes sense.

Ok... Several MA's have offset built-in, but only by bars so you would need to calculate bars by timeframe... D would = 10 for 2 weeks, 30m would = 130, 1m = 3900, etc...

I believe I've only seen offset used for modifying y-axis variables, do you know of any that modify the x-axis for time? If so, I can definitely code what I'm looking for.

Managed to figure it out, seems that I was overthinking it quite a bit. "plot Data = close[10]" in essence does exactly what I'm looking for. Now just need to play around with aggregation periods for different timeframes. Thanks!
