it's not possible to share same attribute between entities.

But you can create same attribute for different entities.

Here an example on how to create product attribute:

public function execute()
{
    $eavSetup->addAttribute(
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product::ENTITY,
        'miscellaneous_meta',
        [
            'type' => 'varchar',
            'group' => 'Search Engine Optimization',
            'backend' => '',
            'frontend' => '',
            'input' => 'text',
            'class' => '',
            'source' => '',
            'global' => ScopedAttributeInterface::SCOPE_GLOBAL,
            'visible' => true,
            'required' => false,
            'user_defined' => true,
            'default' => '',
            'searchable' => false,
            'filterable' => false,
            'comparable' => false,
            'visible_on_front' => true,
            'used_in_product_listing' => true,
            'unique' => false,
            'apply_to' => ''
        ]
    );
}

Here example for categories:

public function execute()
{
    $eavSetup->addAttribute(
    \Magento\Catalog\Model\Category::ENTITY,
    'miscellaneous_meta',
        [
            'type' => 'varchar',
            'backend' => '',
            'frontend' => '',
            'input' => 'text',
            'visible'  => true,
            'default'  => '',
            'required' => false,
            'global'   => ScopedAttributeInterface::SCOPE_STORE,
            'group' => 'Search Engine Optimization'
        ]
    );
}

UPDATE

which version of Magento 2 are you using? because on 2.3 "setup install" it's deprecated, you should use Patch Data, following best practice magento: https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/extension-dev-guide/declarative-schema/data-patches.html
