What program was used to generate this file and what is it supposed to contain?

Can be anything, depends on software that created the file. If you just want to look for strings in the .cfg use a hex editor like hxd. This way you may also find info what program wrote the file.

I am a bit rookie for this HEX editor.

How should I investigate what program wrote the file watching only these strings?

Thanks
