As a trainee, I'm trying to understand the metadata of the dataverse in my host structure, where the implementation of the dataverse is in progress.

Currently, I'm trying to find the location of the files that contain the "Metadata Fields" we see when creating new dataverse (example: "Citation Metadata", "Geospatial Metadata", "Social Sciences and Humanities Metadata", ...)
I attach a screenshot of the corresponding page.
Also, I would like to know how we could add specific metadata to our institution.

For more precision, we use version 4.8.6 of the dataverse.

Thanking you in advance for your help
