I'm wondering how I can create a fixed template for a child page? i.e. if any new page is created linked to the same parent it will automatically be created with the built in macros I desire. Especially since each child page will come with the metadata plugins and their names, so it will make it easier for creator to just add in data instead of adding in macros as well.
Templates are an out of the box feature in Confluence! Go to your space admin context and go to Content Tools. You'll be able to configure a fixed, blank template that users can then use in your space. Note: You cannot add attachments to a template.
You can then add a Create from Template macro on the parent page and link it to your desired template. When the user clicks on that button, then it will automatically create a child page using the template you created!

Bonus: You can add a Space Shortcut to your sidebar that when clicked, will create a page from the template and create it under the correct parent page!
