I have a panel data set and one of the options that appear is quantile regression.

would it be possible to let me know what exactly is EViews estimating in this case?

It is estimating a standard quantile regression on the stacked data, with the exception that any lags you have will not cut across cross-sections. Assuming you have no lags, it will give identical results to performing quantile regression without the panel structure. I.e. the estimation has nothing "panel" about it.

If i created the lags of the variables i want to include in my model in excel

and add them as variables in my panel set later on

would my estimation be correct?

That question is impossible to answer.

so is it performing a cross section quantile regression irrespective of the cross section and the time dimension?

Sort of. If you have no dynamics in your equation (i.e. no lags), then yes, you can think of it as one big cross-section quantile regression.
