I am still struggling with importing FASTQ into qiime 2

I read the tutorial many times but still get errors. Do I need to make a folder with metadata file and manifest file only to import to qiime? Do I need to include in the folder the individual FASTQ files (2 per each sample) as attached in the picture? What are the required format of all the files? I have metadata in yml, manifest in excel or CSV, and individual sequence files in qz extension. Anyone has the exact codes to import these files for quality analysis and denosing? I am struggling with this step for too long and tried many extensions so will appreciate your help. 73021842_1718016368328907_2880760596947533824_n
