How can I save a template using Lyx?
I know I can just save it somewhere and then copy and edit the file. But I want to use the
new from template option in Lyx.

You can save your own file with dummy content in:
- the directory of the default templates, for example in my Linux is
/usr/share/lyx/templates. But probably you will need root privileges to do this and ... be careful with the system updates!
- your own template directory. Go to menus Tools > Preferences ... > Paths > Documents templates > Browse... to select one. Then, make this directory non writable if you want avoid accidental updates of the templates that you open frequently.
