Ok, I assume you're using original MAME?
I'm using MAMEUI.

I'd rather not transfer my files to the Mameui64 folders.
I should be able to keep the files separate and use paths instead.
If you go Options > Directories it seems like a default path is already set up for all the Mameui64 folders, but you can add additional paths. Adding these additional paths will mean I don't have to add these files to the Mameui64 folders?

Or maybe I could even alter the mame.ini and ui.ini files. What's the best way of doing this?
Here's an example of how it would be done in the mame.ini and ui.ini files for original MAME.

samplepath samples;C:\PD\MAME EXTRAs\samples
artpath artwork;C:\PD\MAME EXTRAs\artwork
ctrlrpath ctrlr;C:\PD\MAME EXTRAs\ctrlr
