How to map typed “Hello” to “+ Hello +”

How to realize this case:
Hello -> "+ Hello +" @ JMichaelTX

It is better to start a new question topic than just tack a question on to a similar question.

You need to clarify more generally what you want to do. If all you want is to type “Hello” and have Keyboard Maestro type “+ Hello +”, then all you need is a macro with a Typed String trigger of “Hello” and an action of Insert Text by Typing “+ Hello +”.

Keyboard Maestro typed characters will generally not trigger a Typed String macro so there will not be any recursion.

Alternatively, you could change the Typed String trigger to not delete the characters, and then have actions:

But it is probably not worth it in this case.
