REST API Connection - Alternative to use from Javascript to Http call

Hello, i am a Admin, unfortunately facing a tough situation right now.
What is the easiest way to have a http call from a javascript to create records in salesforce? I have almost no experience with API connections, but with apps from the app store such as formassembly etc.
How easy is it to set up a connection to have a javascript being able to perform a http call?

Thanks a lot in advance for any advice, even if it is a developer, who would be able to assist here.

I do not think FormAssembly let's you make customized API calls.
Form Assembly lets you create an form and populates data into salesforce through it's connectors, these could be making API calls internally but I believe you cannot modify them.

Hi Sankeerth, thx for your reply. This is exactly, what i was expecting. So my question is, what would be the easiest/shortest way to make a http call to salesforce rest api, what in total do i need to have at hands? Are you a developer who might be able to assist in that?

Can you elaborate your use case in detail?

Meanwhile if want to learn about API basics in salesforce you can go through these trailhead modules

These might help in figuring out even if API call is the right option for your use case.
