Is there public documentation for this API?

Adobe does have a publicly available resource on the internet for their web services:

https://helpx.adobe.com/adobe-connect/webservices/topics.html

Are there any specific questions you have?

I just have no absolute clue where to start with this lol...
No specific, but for instance... to get "Data" from web api to a database,

can I do this via Visual Studio, or do I need another tool, do I connect somewhere first...

im reading the "getting started" and even there im lost

So looking at it briefly, it looks like they've got RESTful services in place. If you're not familiar with REST, think of it like what your web browser does under the hood (i.e. beneath the UI). You should be able to use something like HttpClient, or maybe even WebClient (though the former is a bit friendlier to REST). You'll make a request to a URL the same way a browser would, except in this particular case you'll get back XML (or maybe JSON) data rather than HTML.

I haven't looked at great length, but I'm pretty confident that Adobe will have locked down their API to be used only by their customers, and not the just the whole world. So you're going to have to authenticate with the service. You'll have to take a look through the docs to see what their authentication mechanism is.
