How to create and use locpak files for new, custom aircraft

I have two questions for localization files, I don't understand how to create them in the first place (I know compiling DA62 sample creates those files, but I don't understand how they are added to the project and how they are created)

Once I have them in the package how to call the content from interior.xml file to appear on the tooltip (in <TT_VALUE_0> and others)?

They are compiled from the .loc file in the PackageSources folder when you build the project. You can easily edit them with MSFSLocalizer.
