Substitute parameters of a network (not in place update)

I want to replace the parameters of a net with new parameters. e.g.

del net3.conv0.weight
net3.conv0.weight = net.conv0.weight + net2.conv0.weight

but I have the string name of the layer. Is that possible to be done?

I looked into self.convs = nn.ModuleList() but wasn’t sure if that was good or what was the best option…
