Well, QUIC is a complicated protcol, with a lot of things to take care
of, so implementing QUIC from scratch seems a daunting task.

It may be easier to start from existing implementations. See
<https://github.com/ngtcp2/ngtcp2> and
<https://github.com/ngtcp2/nghttp3> and <https://github.com/cloudflare/quiche>;.

There are many. It depends on your abilities / tastes. Cryptography?
Congestion? HTTP?

Which documents did you read? The Internet-Drafts are of course
necessary but they may be hard for a complete beginner. I recommend
<https://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2018/11/26/http3-explained/> for a start.
