Would be pointless, then all pictures have the same date and time, and showing them side by side would be impossible.

Wat one could do: Make sure you have the same number of files, in the same order, and do a batch renaming. Name the pictures from camera 1 001a, 002a, 003a and so on, and name the pictures from camera 2 001b, 002b, 003b and so on. When you put those togther in a folder and sort by filename, they should line up nicely.

Only pointless if you set all images to the same date/time; but why would you want to do that?

LR allows you to adjust all the images by the same amount, e.g. add 1 hour to the capture time of each image. Which is what the OP was asking to do.
