I watched a youtube video in which it said he invented superpowers so I just want to know if this is an actual ability of his.

No, Superman never had the power to give himself new powers. Not even in the Silver Age.

The writers invented new powers for him constantly which, each time, Superman would act as though he'd had each power all along but hadn't needed to use it til that moment.
