General technique for solving exponential equations with added constants?

Not in general, no.

You can approximate it.
Not many problems have algebraic solutions. x^(5) - x = 0 has 5 easy solvable complex roots, but x^(5) - x - 1 = 0 is impossible to solve with radicals despite having 5 complex roots by the FTA.
