I usually do a lot of maps with ArcGIS but I need to dynamize the information about the number of map, name of map, date of map.
How can I do automatically?
I have a template of map with a box in which I need this information.

I recommend reviewing the documentation on What is dynamic text?
Dynamic text is text placed on a map layout that changes based on the current properties of the map document, data frame, and Data Driven Page. Create dynamic text for such things as the following:
- A user name
- The date a map document was saved
- The file path for the map document
- The page numbers and names that update automatically for each page in a series of Data Driven Pages
