Transform internal faces into boundary faces to introduce a baffle; e.g. to introduce thin wall through which the heat transfer should be computed (see e.g. tutorial: $FOAM_TUTORIALS/heatTransfer/buoyantSimpleFoam/circuitBoardCooling)

Add more patches that couple the baffle with the mesh

-internalFacesOnly

Do not convert boundary faces

-overwrite

Overwrite the existing mesh files

Directories through which the data are distributed

Note: if any coupled patch face is selected for baffling the opposite member has to be selected for baffling as well. Note that this is the same as repatching. This was added only for convenience so you don't have to filter coupled boundary out of your set.
