In the solution manual, the values of Cp,m and Cv,m are somehow found. Could someone explain how these equations were derived?

Sections 8.9 and 8.10 in the textbook go through the derivations for these. They use the ideal gas law combined with the C=q/T to derive these formulas for heat capacity at constant pressure and volume.
