Hello here family, I need your advice and your help, I'm on the case...

(Well I'm Cuban, for starters) .. Soon I'll start a project, and I wanted to start using bootstrap, which in fact its library is amazing and phenomenal, I've seen and downloaded a few themes and because it's responsive, I imagine they use some of this. But my case is the following, as I am going to start my project I have studied this program a bit and I want to start doing my work using the MyBB default template, I wanted to know if it is necessary or where to put the following code:

Note_1: I know that many will tell me that I should go to the beginning of the template, but since I should modify it without affecting the rest,

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <title>Bootstrap demo</title>
    <link href="[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" integrity="sha384-gH2yIJqKdNHPEq0n4Mqa/HGKIhSkIHeL5AyhkYV8i59U5AR6csBvApHHNl/vI1Bx" crossorigin="anonymous">
    <h1>Hello, world!</h1>
    <script src="[email protected]/dist/js/bootstrap.bundle.min.js" integrity="sha384-A3rJD856KowSb7dwlZdYEkO39Gagi7vIsF0jrRAoQmDKKtQBHUuLZ9AsSv4jD4Xa" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

For the case above, I have the following questions:

1. How should I use it?
2. Where would the same go?
3. How do you modify that?

I have watched several Bootstrap videos and on the official page, I don't know if links are allowed, but I want you to understand my case a little:

Here I have looked at many things that I would like to implement to start testing the modification that I want to make to the MyBB Default template, and many things are useful for my project, but the problem is that I do not know where to locate the code exposed above, to be able to make use of it, and give a new vision to my project, to try it out and it is good to know your opinions... Thank you in advance....

PS: If there is any other doubt regarding the topic, I would like the administration not to close this topic to continue posting doubts here and not create so many topics, if possible.

Family, thank you for your attention... I await your answers...

PD: At the moment my site is local, because I don't have a server now, but I would like to learn at home to get a vision of what I am doing.
Put your Bootstrap .css file in your {$headerinclude} template, and place your Bootstrap .js file at the very end of your {$footer} template.
To understand... this code that I am going to put is the {$headerinclude}:

I guess it should be like this, of course if the code label that is inside... I put it like this to guide me more or less!!

Forgetting about the code labels that are inside those, I imagine it should look like this
Yep! That's correct.
