Hello,

While playing Escape From Tarkov, my CPU reaches 90 degrees almost constantly, even with the Cooler Boost on.

Is this normal?

If you are playing in EXTREME MODE or in very high resolution, yes.
If not install ThrottleStop and control your CPU PL1, PL2 and Mhz, values.

In FIVR, the box "Unlock Adjustable Voltage" is in gray, I can not check it and by searching on google they say that the latest processors can not be modified

Pretty normal. Yes, the laptop can play games, but it's a relatively thin notebook, which means it's cooling capacity is very limited. On my GE66 Raider 11UG (11th gen i7 + rtx3070), it gets hot playing more games, so much so I need to use an external keyboard.
Currently, I'm editing photos (in the background, it's processing them) and I'm sitting at 82C right now, if that's any indication of the temps.

Okay, so no worries?
If not, regarding the cooler boost, when should I use it? If I use it for several minutes, is it recommended?

I only suggested you change the Mhz of your CPU and the PL1/PL2 wattage supply values, Intel it seems, has disabled under volting for 11th and 12th Gen CPUs.

If not gaming, I prefer 10% - 40% - 70% - 100% - 140% - 150%, I always game with COOLER BOOST!

Okay I see, otherwise I saw that many people lower the maximum processor state from 100% to 99% to disable the turbo boost, is this a good method or can it cause complications?

Yes you can use that also, but some say that it didn't stick, make sure not to have it in HIGH PERFORMANCE power plan if you use this way!
None, but change back when you game.

Where is the advance page?
Click "Features" at the top, and then "User Scenario" from the drop down menu at the top.
On that page see below :

Use the drop down menu and then select Advanced. Then click the gear to the far right and it'll open the fan speed settings.
I leave mine set to this all the time. Generally when it's idle, it's relatively quiet. But it should be good for gaming as well, due to the fan speed settings.

For the moment I have disabled the turbo boost which allows me to have 58-68 instead of 85-95 degrees for my CPU. The only problem is that I'm losing performance so I'm losing a lot of FPS, but I'd rather that than send my computer to the service center.
If not, is it not advisable to disable the turbo boost or does it not affect the laptop?

The game performance will be impacted by the laptop performance, game setting, network,etc.
The laptop performance is impacted by the power or thermal.
You lose the game performance might be related to the thermal throttling.
I recommend you check your laptop performance first.
You can use Cinebench R20 and 3DMark to check.
Before starting the test, please make sure if the laptop is connecting the power adapter and switch to extreme performance mode.
Note. Do not enable "Cooler boost" and please give some time for the laptop to cool down before starting the test (Around 5 mins)
Then you can compare the benchmark result from the reviewer.
If you can not find the same laptop, you can try to find the same specification of CPU and GPU to compare.

This is why I prefer using TS, I can tailor the settings as I please, you can lower the Mhz and PL1/PL2 so that it doesn't impact performance as much, but keep your laptop cooler.
I prefer COOLER BOOST, because this way I can obtain maximum performance gain without so much heat to make it thermal throttle, simple!
You can lower more the Mhz and PL1/PL2 if you want a more silent laptop with USER SCENARIO, you can increase if you want a more performing laptop with COOLER BOOST, without high temps!

90 degrees are totally normal on a gaming laptop. My GE76 sometimes spikes up to 95 but never above, because it throttles instead. I wouldnt be too worried about 90 degrees on a gaming laptop.
