If these models are not from that foundry*flow then they ought
to use the analogLib primitives and you specify the model path
to suit yourself. TSMC surely doesn't want to know about your
provate models.

I think this means:

a) If you want your design to be produced by TSMC, use their models, and nothing else.

b) If you just want to simulate your design, you should refer the additional models to the Cādence analogLib primitive models.

You can't add anything to technology library, because any PDK does not let it happen. They are in READ-ONLY mode. Every device in tech library (in this case tsmc13rf) are characterized by FAB. If you want to just use a transistor model you can use analogLib elements. But these are not real elements hence these cannot be produced. They can be only simulated.
