You'd need to know html/css, js and php and would need to know how wordpress themes and plugins work.

A pagebuilder lets you drag and drop elements to create the html. This requires a good expertise of building platforms with javascript and you'll need knowledge of a js framework like React.

There are frameworks now for website builder that simplify a lot of work for you. Like this one.

Frameworks like that let you create your own website builder easily. Grapejs itself is a feature rich website builder for html/css. However you'll need to know how to integrate that with php and wordpress.

That’s great man, I am currently getting my hand dirty with php, well I know some css and absolutely nothing with JavaScript, but I plan on moving on with that as it goes. Thanks for the comment gee. [Mod edit]

Instead of starting from scratch for each new plugin you write, you may want to start with a boilerplate.

Check WordPress api Pages as well.
Hope it help
Anything else quote me

I personally don't encourage to start a project like this, instead search here on BHW/FB groups.... for a single problem that is in demand and solve it or search on producthunt, appsumo... and see what's in demand right now and create something similar then make it easier, cheaper, more feature...

Then sell it as Saas for monthly subscription, or credits..

Good luck

Boilerplate
https://github.com/DevinVinson/WordPress-Plugin-Boilerplate
Page builder
https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-pagebuilder/
Download both and compare the code, to be able build a similar version.

Note: boilerplate is very important to stick with. To avoid any security issues.
