PSE Premier help says it's possible to trim a motion title by:

 

Trim an individual title instance from the Expert view timeline In the Expert view timeline, locate the title to be trimmed in one of the video tracks. You might need to drag the video track scroll bar to expose the title. Hover the cursor over either end of the title until it changes to the ripple trim cursor . Then drag the end of the title to trim it. Gaps are closed automatically. If you created a black video clip for your title, you’ll need to trim that too. To trim without closing the gap, Ctrl-drag/Cmd-click the clip end instead.

 

I've held the cursor over the scroll bar until I'm blue in the face and it never changes allow me to trim the title. Ctmd-drag didn't work either. I'm using PSE 2020 on a Mac. 

 

How can I trim an individual title?

I don't know what PSE Premier is, so I assume you're talking about Premiere Elements.

You should be able to trim the title if you've closed the Title Adjustments workspace.

Yes, Steve: Premier Elements. I can't trim the Motion Title after closing the Title Adjustments workspace. When I hover the curser over the end of the Title Clip on the timeline, I just get a bracket symbol with a red line through it and I can't trim the Title.

PRE 2020 supports Trimming Classic titles. Are you trying to trim Classic title or Motion title?

I'm trying to trim a motion title. I can trim Classic titles OK.

 

If I can't trim motion titles, is there any way to add text to my clip within PSE Premier?

I'm sure not sure what program you're using. There is no program called PSE Premier.

Although, in Premiere Elements, you are correct. Because Motion Titles have locked animation, you can not extend or trim a Motion Title. It's duration is locked.
