How much Are you familiar with OpenFOAM?
it seems you are newbie, so you should first of all read user guide
as similar as udf in fluent, you should write your pieces of code here! so
for example you choose your solver! in that solver for example conductivity is constant! so it reads a scalar value from dictionary, but you have a varying conductivity, if you have a function for it,
you should add this function to your solver, so you need to know how to implement a function in OpenFOAM and then compile your solver
