I just got a new Samsung phone. If I take a photo and my hands are slightly moving, the photo is blurry. I have to hold my hands totally still to take a decent photo.

I looked for a place to set the shutter speed but couldn't find it. Is there a way to set it?

This was not true on my previous two Android phones.

I use a Samsung Galaxy S9 + running Android 10.0 and I couldn't find a setting for shutter speed in my camera settings.

After a Google search for the topic, I found this:

Here's how:
Open the camera.
Swipe right on the viewfinder until you get to Pro Mode, which will be highlighted in the top bar. ...
Tap the aperture and shutter speed icon, which appears on that bottom row of settings, second from the left, to the right of ISO.

Keep in mind that the shutter and aperture settings are virtual, (software driven).
Smartphones have no shutter, they have light sensors that are enabled, then disabled, and a delay as the data from each is transferred, then processed, then recorded.
Note: This is why actual cameras make far better images than smartphones. Digital or not, they accept a LOT more light in than a phone.

It's a cheaper Samsung phone.

When I tap Pro, the only icons I see are ISO, White Balance, and "+/- 0.0"

I would have to imagine that your phone doesn't have that option then.

Exactly right which is why we always want to know what kind of phone someone has.
