Create cryptocurrency from bitcoin fork

I’m a bit of a noob when it comes to cryptocurrency, I learned about them for awhile but didn’t really understand how they worked until recently, and I still have a few gaps in my knowledge.

I am hoping to create a new cryptocurrency from a bitcoin fork, mostly for learning, and a little bit of fun. I have okay experience in programming, but minimal experience in cryptocurrency, and I think that may be hindering my ability to understand existing guides. I roughly followed this answer to get as far as I am, but the genesis generator requires a pubkey and an nBits param, and I have no idea how to get these.

Any advice or resources pertaining to those parameters or cryptocurrency creation in general would be great.
