I'm asking if the files are no longer hosted in their original server do the exists on the Internet Archive?

What I have tried:

I have tried to cache on the Internet Archive a page with audio files attached, it did not cache the files just the text.

No. Only the HTML is cached, it (generally) has no direct access to the data behind that. Think about it: to cache the whole site, it would need direct access to the DB server to cache a snapshot of the whole database which would be a massive security violation.

You can't access files that are no longer on the relevant server.

Is it possible to make my own website with audio and video files attached and set it up in a way that wayback machine can cache the entire site with all the files attached in it?

Thanks

No. It only caches the site HTML.

base64 images can be cached in the internet archive if they are inside the html of the page?
