I am modifying a work item that requires a few fields that have already been defined within the project collection. In keeping with best practices I want to use these fields in my work item. How do I use these existing fields? Do I simply copy the existing field's attributes and create the new field in the work item with those attributes?
[existing field attributes defined in XML]
<FIELD reportable="dimension" refname="Co.TestSME" name="Test SME" type="String">
Use this to define the new field?

Yes, you can just reuse the originally defined custom work item field and use it in other work items and Team projects.
