If I have understand your question, you are looking for the location of the web-application web.config file, right? That file is also located in the Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories folder - usually in a subfolder named after the port number assigned to the web-app. You should be able to determine which folder referes to your web-app by looking at the web site list under IIS Manager - from here opening the folder is a simple matter of clicking the explore button. See also here.

Pleave a comment if you need further detail or if I have missunderstood you question.

Sorry, saw this post only now. I'm not sure I have understood your question. You need to locate the web.config file for the Central Admin site ? That would be in the \Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\ Port_Number_of_Central_Administration folder, as you indicated in your question. Or are you having problems in determining what you must insert in aforementioned files?? –  SPArchaeologist Apr 18 '12 at 14:32
