You can find the related file under.

Then you can copy the template file into your child theme’s respective location and then edit.



Thanks. Is there any easy way to add my own template to this list?

Difficulty depends on the user so I’m not sure if what I’ll share with you is easy for you or not. Please follow this instruction from WordPress. Here’s a guide on customizing X. If you’re not familiar with customizing themes, it would be best you hire a web developer.
