To get the 'Persona' template work with "Author", you need to map crawled properties ows_q_USER_Author to a managed properties RefinableStringXX.

All crawled properties of ows_q_USER_\<name> and like People:Manager,People:AccountName etc. return technical account name.

If you want the display name only for the Created by person you can map the crawled property Office:4 to a managed property and use that.

File Type

The "File Type" template is intended to work with the FileExtension managed property.

Container Tree

The _"Container Tree" template is intended to work with the ParentLink managed property. Since this one is not refinable by default, you must map the ows_ParentUrl crawled property to a RefinableStringXX managed property. The purpose of this template is to give the ability to navigate trough a folder hierarchy as metadata by parsing the parent link URL segments.
