how can i change string type into DateTime type?
or how can i import appropriate format so that i can calculate easily


You don't need the brackets around {row.CreationDate}, as Cypher is interpreting this as a map literal, or as parameter access. Just use row.CreationDate without brackets.

What's worked for me is this:

datetime({['end date'],'ms', 'dd/MM/yyyy')})

Using a combination of the datetime() function and the function.
