I think this is what you are looking for.

I regularly update the terminal files and schedule files using real world schedules from Flight Aware or Flight Stats. Flight stas does no longer show the A/C types.

To get the terminals used I look up the airport using Wikipedia & get the list of airlines from there. Copy the list to a word document or similar. That gives you the basic terminal info.

I then sctratch around the airports web sites & find a list of the terminal diagrams and there normally is a list of each airline using the terminals.

It is just a matter of opening the respective terminal file using a text editor and amend the fille as needed. Remenber that the terminal file uses the ICAO 4 letter airline  codes wheras the schedules use the IATA 3 leter codes.

Hope this helps
