How to inherit the custom field and summary field values from parent issue to sub-task issue in JIRA?

You'll need code.  JIRA can default some of the system fields, but that's it.  If you want to "inherit" more, you'll nee to write code to duplicate the things you need.

I'd strongly recommend not duplicating the summary though - it should be indicative of what the sub-task is for as part of the whole, not just a copy of the parent.

So, what is the settings for "Update parameters of the Copy Value From Other Field Function for this transition." and "Update parameters of the Set Field Value from Parent Function for this transition." are not configuring or set the value of field inherited from parent issue to sub-task issue?

Ok, you have an add-on that provides the code you need.

The second function is the one you need - you should find you can select a field and it will be copied when you go through a transition (such as "create")

Where I can do the coding? Anywhere that I can place my coding? Could you tell me more details of the deployment or coding procedures? Thanks!

You don't need to code, you have already installed something that can do it for you!  Have a look at the functions available on the transition you are doing.
