How to create API for wordpress?

I want to create APIs for a project in Wordpress. I am new to wordpress and doesn't have much idea how things work in wordpress. I figured out that most of the things are done in wordpress using plugins. Hence there might be a way to use REST APIs using some plugin in wordpress.

I installed Wordpress REST API (Version 2) plugin and activated it.

Now I am not able to understand how this plugin works. It asks users to use some url which looks something like this

localhost/woocommerce/wp-json/wp/v2/users (This shows only one user which was created by wordpress. The default admin user. Even if I add more users, this API doesn't show the rest of the users.)

I am actually confused how this plugin works and I need to create custom APIs.

I tried creating API key and secret as I found in some answers. But what I really want to know is how this particular plugin works so that I can create my custom APIs.

If anyone is familiar with this plugin and how this works, any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance
