Those aren't files. Those are commands you type. Both "dmesg" and "lspci"
will provide an output that you can copy and paste from a terminal. That
should be very easy to achieve. Many terminals also allow to store the
output from the console directly to a file.

It's generally a good idea to get familiar with the serial console when
working with a SPARC machine. Lots of stuff can be controlled on many
of these machines using the serial console.

Again, those aren't files. They are commands you run.
