so my question is, if i can add our 5 managed metadata site columns as filters inside the modern search? so in this case i can filter the document libraries based on the managed metadata values?

It’s not supported to customize the filters you see on the verticals of search.

Microsoft team mentioned that they’re ongoing on adding new filters and custom filters. Don't have an ETA yet but are experimenting with among others author refiners.

More information and update you can check the thread: SharePoint Online Search Filters - Managed Metadata
