The building is naturally ventilated but have also electric wall fans ventilation system on the rooms. I didn't find a idf option to simulate that. Any suggestion?

Both of them are available in OpenStudio and will allow you to input airflow and fan electricity consumption. The first one makes it simpler to add infiltration to compensate for exhaust for example, so I suggest starting with this one.
