It doesn't really matter where binaries are stored.  The default smb

smbpasswd is stored in /etc/smb.conf.  The default smbpasswd location is
/etc/smbpasswd in RH package.  These are very common knowledge.  I prefer
you to get a Linux /or Unix book, and study how the structure works.

No and you don't have to recompile samba.
