I can boot a vm with cloud-init enabled image with some config data, including inject ONE file with --file <dest>=<src> format. Well, I wonder how to inject multiple personalized files, it is said at most 5 files supported( nova --debug boot --config-drive=true --user-data ./cloud.cfg --key-name cloud_init_test --file <dest>=<src> --image ci_image_x --flavor 3 --nic net-id=<id>,v4-fixed-ip=<ip> vm_a

I do not know off the top of my head how you inject multiple files when running nova boot, other than suggesting providing multiple --file argument pairs.

However it may be of use to know that cloud-init supports the use of a MIME multipart archive to provide multiple content types in a single file. By concatenating your inputs into such a file you can provide them all for injection using only one --file argument.
