In fact, Citoid (the needed extension) is installed and just need to be configured. I think you just have to request an admin to edit wikiquote:MediaWiki:Citoid-template-type-map.json to map possible document types to appropriate templates. Each mapped template need its templateData to be set. I think most of the configuration for both template-type-map.json and TemplateData can just be copyed out from Wikipedia. You can find help on mw:Citoid. —Pols12 (talk) 00:23, 4 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
