In Google Calendar you can set a time for an event with 1 line by doing the following (see also screenshot below): "dinner 1pm" this will set an event for called dinner at 1pm.

What I'd also like to be able to do is set when I get the reminder for this, so: "dinner 1pm alert 45 mins".

Is something like that possible?

AFAIK it's not possible. Instead use the set reminder feature of Google Keep or Google Inbox by Gmail.
