The aim of the paper is to study the geometry of a Riemannian manifold M, with a special structure depending on 3 real parameters, a smooth map φ into a target Riemannian manifold N, and a smooth function f on M itself. We will occasionally let some of the parameters be smooth functions. For a special value of one of them, the structure is obtained by a conformal deformation of a harmonic-Einstein manifold. The setting generalizes various previously studied situations; for instance, Ricci solitons, Ricci harmonic solitons, generalized quasi-Einstein manifolds and so on. One main ingredient of our analysis is the study of certain modified curvature tensors on M, related to the map φ, and to develop a series of results for harmonic-Einstein manifolds that parallel those obtained for Einstein manifolds both some time ago and in the very recent literature. We then turn to locally characterize, via a couple of integrability conditions and mild assumptions on f, the manifold M as a warped product with harmonic-Einstein fibers extending in a very non trivial way a recent result for Ricci solitons. We then consider rigidity and non existence, both in the compact and non-compact cases. This is done via integral formulas and, in the non-compact case, via analytical tools previously introduced by the authors.
