Creating custom button to generate an invoice

I am new when it comes to visualforce and creating custom controllers. 

I have a problem to solve where each Account needs the ability to quickly add an Invoice with only 1 Invoice line item. The ask is to be able to click a button on the Account and be prompted to enter the quantity prior to creating the invoice. 
The result should be after the quantity is entered, an Invoice record is created with 1 Invoice line item showing the fields price and quantity.

Help with how the code should be written would help a lot.

So the complete ask is: 

Corent, a new client of ours, has a requirement that each Customer Account will need the ability to quickly add an Invoice with only 1 Invoice line item. The Corent Project Lead has requested that we default the price for the Invoice line item as $150.00, but they should be able to change it themselves in the future if they want to. Corent's Customer Accounts will be purchasing their new Product, Corent Play. They have also stated that they would like to click a button on the Account and be prompted to enter the quantity prior to creating the Invoice. He would also like to view the defaulted price of Google Stadia. 

Using Lightning (or VisualForce) and Apex, create a new button on Customer Accounts and be able to enter the quantity and create an Invoice record with 1 Invoice line item that's showing the price, quantity and Product, Corent Play.

Where invoices are stored are completely up to the developer.
