Hi @osmoses
welcome to the forum! Please introduce yourself here!

I just installed ODK Collect but unable to get it started.

What do you mean? Do you run into a crash or something like that? Please provide more info.
If not and it's just lack of knowledge of ODK please read the documentation https://docs.opendatakit.org/collect-intro/

I am new. downloaded on my android with a move to start my form, generate my questions and start taking data.

what I discovered is I have the screen and no clue what to do. while reading the document, go a support that I needed a server, aggregate docs shows I can use a gcp which I also got but got hooked when I saw create in the document but the Google cloud has many create link with no direct mention of what to create. This has male me stuck as i am unable to use the collect ODK as at now.

I think you just need to spend more time on the documentation but if it's too difficult for you you can try videos like:
