How to add variable from user table to template

Today I had to upgrade from vBulletin 4.0.5 to the latest 5.6.4 due to the server forcing me into the modern world with PHP 7.4.

All of my 10+ years of custom code and modifications is lost. I hate it but that's life.

I just want to recover the ucash balances (which are in the user table in the database) and display them under posts. I know that doing things like earning new points for posting and trading points isn't going to happen. It seems like vbulletin 5 is not easy to mod.

But for the sake of preserving our history, I just want to show the ucash balances.

Can someone help me with how I would do this in a template edit? Everything I know from vBulletin 4 is outdated.

Which table columns and where / how to display (screenshot from old system)?

The ucash column of the user table. I can't make screenshots of the old system because it became unusable when PHP was updated, and now the forums are on 5.6.4.

Ucash is just a float value.

If you don't have a screenshot - you should describe where you want to show it. This is not a default vbulletin field, I don't know the meaning of it.

Screenshot of actual board and paint where what.

Or anyone other who knows which mod this field published

I want to just put a line below posts: #
I found the template conversation_userinfo and i can put static text there, but not the variable that shows the points balance from the ucash column of the user table.

In vb4 I could do it on the postbit_legacy template.
The ucash mod can be found here

I couldn't find any points mod for vb5.

As a side note i wouldn't mind getting rid of those ugly Facebook/twitter share buttons too.
