I'm currently using Solr 6.5.1, and will upgrade to Solr 7.2.1 soon.

When people start wanting to customize internal details to this level, I seriously have to ask "why?"  The dev team has spent a lot of time and effort coming up with these configurations. They are not designed to be customizable.  Some of them certainly CAN be customized, with a lot of manual work.

These particular questions involve Jetty, not so much Solr.  From what I can tell, the solr-jetty-context.xml file can be renamed to anything, it's the fact that it's in the "contexts" directory that makes Jetty read it.  I do not know whether it needs an xml extension ... I would preserve that if it were me.

The "solr-webapp" directory location is defined within the solr-jetty-context.xml file, so if you change that, you're going to need to edit the context file in order to keep Solr working. The scripts included with Solr have this path hardcoded, and for that reason, Solr probably won't even start without manual script edits if the webapp directory is changed.

Anticipating another question you might have:  Another piece of information in solr-jetty-context.xml is the context path -- set to "/solr" -- this is the first part of the URL path on all API calls.  You can change this, and Solr itself will still work properly, but a lot of things have this path hard-coded (like the scripts, certain Java libraries like SolrCli, and the admin UI), so those features will break unless you manually edit them for the new path.
