You have to create a adminhtml theme to override this phtml. you have the steps in this link: How to create admin theme for magento 2


It is not possible with create custom module or custom Theme for admin.

My Suggestion is that a create custom module and changes template from this module.

See How to override an module M2.1.9 : How to override the magento default .phtml file under vendor\magento\module-sales\view\frontent\templates\email\items.phtml

One of advantage of this process, you can use this module for any module template override.
