PHP Curl Setup Option

I've used CURL quite a bit with my existing systems and it works well.   Here for example is the php code I use to translate some text via Google Translate .

	$api_key = 'myBigLongAPIkey';
	$text = "Please translate my text";
    $url = 'https://www.googleapis.com/language/translate/v2?key='.$api_key.'&q='.rawurlencode($text).'&target=fr&source=en&format=text';
	
    $ch = curl_init($url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    $res = curl_exec($ch);                 
    curl_close($ch);

But I'm trying to follow some instructions for a new API call I need to make and I'm not sure how to translate the following into something like my PHP call above.  Can you help me convert this into the format like what I have in the code above?

curl -H "Authorization: Token token=myBigLongAPIkey" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X GET "https://domain.com/apinames/1?include=owner"

Thank you

What is the name of the API?  If you have a link to their online documentation, please post it here, thanks.

It wasn't obvious on their main pages, but I did a google search for PHP API freshsales.io and that sent me to these pages.
https://www.freshsales.io/libraries/php/

I think this will give me what I need, but I'm open to any advice you'd give.

Yeah, it looks like they have a pre-packaged PHP setup, and I would use that first.  

If I were trying to do this with cURL in PHP it might be something like this...
<?php // /demo/temp_pkonstan1.php
/**
 * Demonstrate the basics of cURL GET-method request
 *
 * http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/libcurl-errors.html
 */
error_reporting(E_ALL);


// USAGE EXAMPLE
$url = /** YOUR API ENTRY POINT HERE **/ NULL;

// TRY THE REMOTE WEB SERVICE
$response = new GET_Response_Object($url);

// SHOW THE WORK PRODUCT
echo "<pre>";
if (!$response->document) var_dump($response);
echo htmlentities($response->document);

// SHOW THE COOKIES, IF ANY
echo PHP_EOL;
echo file_get_contents('cookie.txt');


Class GET_Response_Object
{
    public $href, $title, $http_code, $errno, $info, $document;

    public function __construct($href, $user=NULL, $pass=NULL, $get_array=[], $title=NULL)
    {
        // ACTIVATE THIS TO AVOID TIMEOUT FOR LONG RUNNING SCRIPT
        // set_time_limit(10);

        // STORE THE CALL INFORMATION
        $this->href  = $href;
        $this->title = $title;

        // PREPARE THE GET STRING
        $get_string = http_build_query($get_array);
        if ($get_string) $get_string = '?' . $get_string;

        // MAKE THE REQUEST
        if (!$response = $this->my_curl($href, $user, $pass, $get_string))
        {
            // ACTIVATE THIS TO SEE THE ERRORS AS THEY OCCUR
            trigger_error("Errno: $this->errno; HTTP: $this->http_code; URL: $this->href", E_USER_WARNING);
        }
        else
        {
            return $response;
        }
    }

    protected function my_curl($url, $user, $pass, $get_string, $timeout=3)
    {
        // PREPARE THE CURL CALL
        $curl = curl_init();
