How to add values from two CSV files?

I have multiple tables, can I add/OR/AND... on each cell of all the tables?

For example, if I have below two tables, and add the corresponding cells,
file1.csv

row_id,0,2,4
0,     0,1,1
2,     0,0,1

file2.csv

row_id,0,2,4
0,     0,1,1
2,     0,1,0

The expected output is:

row_id,0,2,4
0,     0,2,2
2,     0,1,1

Thanks a lot!

Generally speaking, it's not a great idea to name your fields (or, in this case, your columns) with numbers, because that will make difficult code in Splunk. But in this case, you won't actually need to reference them directly at all:

| inputlookup file1.csv
| append 
 [ | inputlookup file2.csv ]
| stats sum(*) AS * BY row_id
