How to add a Teams user to a channel based on user input?

hi all. What I'm trying to do is have a form (in ms forms if possible) that has a field for user. typing in there will come up with our AAD user directory (ie select a company employee). Then, under that, another field where i can select multiple existing teams channels. And then a submit button that once pressed, adds the selected user to all of the channels requested. The idea is to remove the tedious task of adding new hires to all the channels they will be assigned to one by one. IF i could figure out how to make a field in MS forms a validated company AAD record, then in PA i could just add them using the teams connector. BUT i can't figure out how to automate it so that the initial form has an email field instead of a plain text field. Any ideas on how i would be able to do this, either automating forms or some other way?

It's unfortunate that there is no action could add a user into an MS team channel, if you like this feature and want it could be possible in the future, you could head to this idea and vote it:
