These are airline specific. There is no absolute answer.

Well, some are obvious, like a visual - PF looks out! (As does PNF in my experience )

AWOPS - Co looks 'in', Captain looks 'out' (with a fair bit of 'in' before )

'Normal' coupled or non-coupled approach is down to 'choice'. I guess if your SOPs do not specify....................as long as it is briefed so each knows what they are doing.

As far as I know on manual flown app:
PF: Flyies the acft and ask for CHK list , Answers PM call outs,MCP setting and configuration changes or any other instructions for assistance
PM has the radios ,monitoring of APP a ACFT SPD (calls for dev +10 /-5 kts Vref), FLT path and sys,sets MCP ,SET airplane config changes(flaps ,ldg gear) on request of PF,Complete chk list on request of PF ,Call outs (LLZ alive ,Radial alive ,GS alive ,gs check DME /ALT) , 1000, 500,MINIMUMS or MDA, if no RA call outs PM calls 100 50 40 30 20 10; SPD break UP or Down etc.CMD only announces G/A althougt F/o may recomend this too.
Autopilot Egaged App:
The same as Above but PF has to set MCP , if CAT II or III autoland then capt will be PF and special Call outs(1000 LAND # DES XXX FT etc) to cross check ACFT AUTOLAND SYS OPERATION and LV APP briefing and CAT II/III procedures review before descent are required.
These SOP may vary between companies and ACFT.
Fly Safe.
