On the top-right of the page, click on "Add API". A panel shows on your right. Select the API you want to use or configure a custom one if it's not in the list.
From the APIs section, click on the API you want to make request to. The Instructions page of that API shall now appear. That page will guide you step by step on how to make API call.
From the APIs section, click on the API you want to change credentials. Then click on the "Credentials" tab (in the top banner). Depending on the API authentication method, you will have to provide credentials.

Yes! Have a look to our setup component. This is pretty useful if you are looking for a way to retrieve the credentials of your own customers (e.g. to create a marketplace of integrations on your own service).
Bearer supports webhooks at its core and each API can be configured with webhooks. Learn more about webhooks here.
