How do I proceed to make a quad (not necessarily same shape) at an 3 vertice edge? Extrude doesn't do the trick with the vertices selected and fill just creates a triangle~

There is an add on included, called F2, go to Edit > Preferences > Addons and type F2 to search.

Then, select the corner vertex (in my case in the middle) and press F

I don't think there's any automatic way, but you can enable the Snap to Vertex mode, extrude, snap to the vertex (shortcut Ctrl if you haven't activated the Snap option itself), then fill:

Or keep the Snap to Vertex mode activated, also activate the Auto Merge option and duplicate snap one of your existing face:
