This isn’t something that you can configure in the Jira administration UI. It is possible, but it’s going to require some Jira customization skills.
Now, to add another panel is less hacky, but it still requires Jira customization skills. Basically, you want to create a Web Panel Plugin, and set the location to be “atl.jira.view.issue.left.context” with the appropriate “weight.” To find out more about this, you can start at https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Web+Panel+Plugin+Module.
I don’t remember where I found the “atl.jira.view.issue.left.context” though. I don’t think its officially documented anywhere. Atlassian leaves out a lot of documentation for developers, unfortunately. That’s bad of them.
The templates are not in the file system. They are part of the system plugin called “jira-view-issue-plugin”.
Also, you’ll probably need to modify some of the Java files as well in order to expose the data you want to the templates you will be modifying.
It’s not a simple task, unfortunately.
You'll also need to add and/or amend the java that pulls fields out of the other panels - if you want field X to be placed in the people panel (and it's not a user type field already) then you'll need code as Cedric said, to get it available in that panel, AND code to supress it from where it originally appears.
And don't forget that you're going to have to maintain this, re-evaluating and possibly rewriting it on every upgrade of Jira. And if you ever need Atlassian support, they could well say "no, not until you remove it and use a supported system"
Actually, for the "people" section, it's easy. Use custom fields of type "user picker", and the system will place them there automatically.
