Please look in the directory
to find the binary examples it sounds like you're looking for.
To become familiar with MESA binary, I recommend working through some of
the materials from the MESA summer school.
While focused on massive stars, Selma de Mink's 2017 lecture is a good
introduction to binary mass transfer in MESA.
Hope that helps,
