If I’m not wrong, only PRO version and above can do that.
Open-source does not allow for custom task type.

Hello Amal,
If you want to show different task type names in the lightbox, you can change that in the gantt.locale.labels variable:

Here is an example of how it works:

If you want to change more than just names, you need to apply more modifications. The following article explains what you need to change:
https://docs.dhtmlx.com/gantt/desktop__task_types.html#creatingacustomtype
And here is the sample with the custom task type:
