To search for an input, the simplest to do is to type in keywords in the Search box in the left panel.  You'd then be given different options.  You can try typing in 56 in your case.

The input screen for Form 56 is under Misc. FormNotice Concerning Fiduciary Relationship (56).  Check the box for Print with tax return, make the relevant input underneath, and the form will be printed with the F.1041.

Are you sure IRS wants them attached?  Form 56 is the equivalent of a Form 2848, although not always processed at the same location.  In most cases it should have been filed before a tax return is needed.
