What you will find is that these items are located on Master Pages. Go
to Edit > Master Pages, and you bring up a dialog with InnerPageRight
and InnerPageLeft, in addition to Normal master pages.

The other thing to know is the generic page number character, which
shows up on the master page as '#', but entered with Insert > Character
> Page Number, or Ctrl+Shift+Alt+P for its keyboard shortcut.
