How can a user initialize the lending\borrowing pool on AAVE?


I am trying to understand the process of initializing the pool of lending and borrowing on AAVE. Is it possible for a user or project owner to do this? If so, can incentives be selected and are there any criteria for choosing the token pairs?

Anyone can suggest a new asset via governance, there are no pairs as AAVE is not a DEX. Lending markets need to have liquidity to function well, DEXs like uniswap and balancer help with that aspect.
