Since ofbiz was designed to work with lost common market databases, we 
can not use a specific database data type in the entitymodel file, 
instead with use a set of type that should be mapped to underlying databse .
look at mapping files at framework/entity/fieldtype
for example : with a postgresql database the id-ne is mapped to 
VARCHAR(20) according to framework/entity/fieldtype/fieldtypepostgres.xml
<field-type-def type="id-ne" sql-type="VARCHAR(20)" java-type="String"/>

in general type data should be found in <Component_name>TYpeData.xml 
under data directory for each componenet, since this is related to party 
you should find BILL_FROM_VENDOR in

Sorry I don't know !

ContactMechTypePurpose data is also defined in

technically no if you define a new contactMechPurposeType PAY_LOCATION
You may use and IDE search function to find the data you want  :-)
