    The motor that drives the filament into the hot end is called the Extruder.  When it is mounted right on top of the hot end it is considered a Direct Drive system.  If the extruder is mounted off to the side somewhere and drives the filament through a plastic tube/guide to the hot end that is a "Bowden" system.  They require some different values in Cura.


    There are two ways to go here.  You can install a "Custom FFF" printer in Cura and change the settings to match your printer (almost everything is an option), or you can find a printer that is much like yours, install that one, change the name, and make a couple of adjustments.  If you have a direct drive it looks like you can install an Ender 3 S1 Pro.  Your printer build plate is a tad smaller.  Things like that can be adjusted in the Machine Settings.  


    After installing a printer (which you can always remove if you feel you've messed something up) select the "Settings / Printers / Manage Printers" and then select "Machine Settings".  The build plate size and the Firmware Flavor are the important things there.  The "Print Head" settings only come into play when printing in "One at a Time" mode.


    If you go over to Reddit you may find a user group of Voxelab printers.  They would be better sources of info.
