If you want to modify files, I would suggest not finding the debian installed versions, but instead doing a from-source checkout and creating an overlay. Modifying system files is generally a bad idea.

Searching the ROS wiki isn't a bad idea.

If you're looking for the files themselves, roslocate and roscd are the tools you want.
