I would like to retrieve ALL permissions (including ACLs) and attributes of files and folders (both) from a folder and its accompanying files on a drive.

Most frequently one sees ls -le being used to get such data, however are there attributes, including extended attributes, that this misses?

So far the most comprehensive info I've been able to pull up is via:

ls -laeO@tr $FILE
xattr -l $FILE

Are there any additional commands that are necessary to retrieve all possible permissions and extended attributes that a file or folder could possibly have set for it in macOS?
