I am 19 years old, around 1.62 meters tall and a weight of 55 kilograms, and I want to increase my height.
Is it possible to do it at my age? If so, can I have a specific diet or use growth hormones?

The growth of a child or a teenager is mainly due to the epiphyseal or growth plates in the long bones of the body. The most important long bones are tibia, femur and humerus. Throughout the growing years of a human, cells divide constantly in the epiphyseal plates thus making the bones longer. Around the age 17 (little earlier in girls) the growth stops. The hallmark of this biological phenomenon is the ossification of the growth plates and the cell division has ended.
As so in your age, there are no biological "sources" on growth which could be boosted in ways.
