I have installed modules on Magento 2. I don't want to touch the module file. Is it possible to override that third-party module's template file from my Custom Module?

Use sequence in your module.xml in order to load phtml file from your custom module


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../../../lib/internal/Magento/Framework/Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="Custom_Module" setup_version="1.0.0">
            <module name="Thirdparty_Module"/>


<referenceBlock name="third_party_block_name">
    <action method="setTemplate">
        <argument name="template" xsi:type="string">Custom_Module::thirdparty_template.phtml</argument>

You can override custom module's template by overriding it in your theme as follows :
Copy it in your theme under the path app/design/frontend/Anshu/mytheme/Custom_Mymodule/templates/<path_to_template_file>

Anshu : Your theme namespace
mytheme : Your theme name
Custom_Mymodule : Your module's name

and make required modifications.
I hope this will help you.
