Aave v3 code base - Learning


I am trying to learn Aave v3 code base.
So as a learning practice, I am trying to deploy a new lending pool on testnet of any custom ERC20 tokens. Can anyone suggest me which contract should I interact with?
I was looking at IPool.sol interface but I couldn't see any function which will let me define a new pool. Any help would be highly appericiated.

There is only one pool per market. To add another erc20 asset, initReserve / batchInitReserve method in pool configurator is called by admin. For testing/dev purpose you can use hardhat fork, impersonate admin accout and the reserve.
