How to access Rest API via C# application?

I have a local access to Splunk on my system and I am seeking out means of accessing the API via a C# application. I noticed there was some documentation but no clear direction on data definition or additional routes to accessing the data. Could I get some help with this?

I am guessing the only way to retrieve data from Splunk would be through the SDK? In my case downloaded "The Splunk PCL Client" from Nuget Packages. I cannot find that package for some reason and tried the others which did not download. Additional information, I am using .NET6  and on Splunk Enterprise. I am trying to do is download live data or logs from the dashboard, is that possible without downloading the packages?

Is there an easier means of accessing Enterprise via username, password, and data I would like to download? I think the closest I came to this is here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.5/RESTUM/RESTusing#Encrypt_REST_API_requests

Any help is appreciated and thank you so much so far for your patience.
