III.Customize the Email Contact form 

Step 1: Create file form.phtml in app/code/YourVendor/YourModule/view/frontend/templates. You can take a look at the sample code of ours right below:

<form class="form contact"
      action="<?= $block->escapeUrl($block->getFormAction()) ?>"
      data-hasrequired="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('* Required Fields')) ?>"
    <fieldset class="fieldset">
        <legend class="legend"><span><?= $block->escapeHtml(__('Write Us')) ?></span></legend><br />
        <div class="field note no-label"><?= $block->escapeHtml(__('Jot us a note and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.')) ?></div>
        <div class="field name required">
            <label class="label" for="name"><span><?= $block->escapeHtml(__('Name')) ?></span></label>
            <div class="control">
                <input name="name" id="name" title="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('Name')) ?>" value="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr($this->helper('Magento\Contact\Helper\Data')->getPostValue('name') ?: $this->helper('Magento\Contact\Helper\Data')->getUserName()) ?>" class="input-text" type="text" data-validate="{required:true}"/>
       <--New field customize-->
        <div class="field subject required">
             <label class="label" for="subject"><span><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('Subject') ?></span></label>
             <div class="control">
                  <input name="subject" id="subject" title="<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('Subject') ?>" value="" class="input-text" type="text" data-validate="{required:true}"/>
        <div class="field email required">
            <label class="label" for="email"><span><?= $block->escapeHtml(__('Email')) ?></span></label>
            <div class="control">
                <input name="email" id="email" title="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('Email')) ?>" value="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr($this->helper('Magento\Contact\Helper\Data')->getPostValue('email') ?: $this->helper('Magento\Contact\Helper\Data')->getUserEmail()) ?>" class="input-text" type="email" data-validate="{required:true, 'validate-email':true}"/>
        <div class="field telephone">
            <label class="label" for="telephone"><span><?= $block->escapeHtml(__('Phone Number')) ?></span></label>
            <div class="control">
                <input name="telephone" id="telephone" title="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('Phone Number')) ?>" value="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr($this->helper('Magento\Contact\Helper\Data')->getPostValue('telephone')) ?>" class="input-text" type="text" />
        <div class="field comment required">
            <label class="label" for="comment"><span><?= $block->escapeHtml(__('What’s on your mind?')) ?></span></label>
            <div class="control">
                <textarea name="comment" id="comment" title="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('What’s on your mind?')) ?>" class="input-text" cols="5" rows="3" data-validate="{required:true}"><?= $block->escapeHtml($this->helper('Magento\Contact\Helper\Data')->getPostValue('comment')) ?></textarea>
        <?= $block->getChildHtml('') ?>
    <div class="actions-toolbar">
        <div class="primary">
            <input type="hidden" name="hideit" id="hideit" value="" />
            <button type="submit" title="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('Submit')) ?>" class="action submit primary">
                <span><?= $block->escapeHtml(__('Submit')) ?></span>

Step 2: Next, create contact_index_index.xml in app/code/YourVendor/YourModule/view/frontend/layout to override the previous form.phtml file with the new one. Take a look at our sample code below:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="" layout="1column" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">    
      <referenceBlock name="contactForm" remove="true"/>   
       <referenceContainer name="content">
           <block class="Magento\Contact\Block\ContactForm" name="customContactForm" template="Magenticians_Modulecontact::form.phtml" />

Step 3: Go to MARKETING > Email Templates and click Add New Template button:

Select Contact Form from the Template field and click the Load Template button. Then click the Save Template button.

Step 4: Go to STORES > Configuration >General > Contacts tab:

Choose My Custom Form that you have created for the Email Template field. Then click Save Config.

If you have done all the steps correctly, your result will be the Contact Us form with a new field Subject like our screencap below:
