As you mentioned that you are new to these terms so I would suggest you connect moe with your team and talk about this. They will give you proper guidance technically.
The project manager can organize the entire process with templates and other supervisions. It helps them to ensure that the projects are progressing in the way they have planned without getting derailed.

Project templates enable you to capture and re-use the structure and content of existing projects, including project pages, custom tracker fields, and workflow definitions, to speed new project creation and standardize lifecycle processes.
Project templates allow you to create and configure new projects quickly, enforce organizational standards, and facilitate process improvement.
A template can include the structure of the original project without any of the content, or it can include both the structure and the content of the original project.
- "Structure" means the folders and sub-folders in the original project.
- "Project Content" means any work items you or any other project member have created as part of the project. For example, when you create a tracker artifact to manage a piece of work, that tracker artifact is part of your project's content. Any documents you upload to the project and any wiki pages you create are part of the project's content.
