I am trying to add a link to the Hover Panel of the People Item Display Template. I've can't change the Display Template for the Person Result Type. It seems you can't edit Result Types provided by the Search Service.

I can copy the Person Result Type, and make my changes, but how will the Search Result know to use my Result Type and not the default one?

Create copy of Person Result Type(target is your new People Item Display Template)

Create copy of People Item Display Template and apply changes.

Follow this articles https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/search/how-to-change-the-way-search-results-are-displayed

    And if you are customizing search display templates often, I can really recommend having a look at VS code, Search query tool, Google dev tools and the VS code add on SPGo 😊 Oct 5, 2018 at 15:23
