    Since you came over to Arch's ecosystem, if you want to grab something from the AUR (like any other Arch user does eventually), i'll recommend you to install paru as your AUR helper, it has a nice feature were it won't let you to install anything if you don't read the PKGBUILD first. Also, try to Learn some bash and about the PKGBUILD system.

    yay or paru are recommended as AUR helpers. Endeavour OS comes default with yay so use that.
  • what do i need to know to switch to arch?
    There are Pacman wrappers like Paru though they don't change much but adding easy AUR support since Pacman is already a very powerful package manager. (I'd only put it behind xbps (Void Linux) and emerge (Gentoo Linux) but I wouldn't worry about either of those yet).
