I want to recreate this kind of Menu UI, don't care about the color swatches in front of those. Just need a functionality to add using that plus sign, and I get a new string variable as these and can rename on double click. If you can provide a code is useful, or you can point me to theory or docs for creating the UI.

Have a look into Create an interface which is similar to the material list box (possible duplicate)

These examples are way better and much more complete than the ones you will find in the templates / documentation / blogs and can be customized to any requirement.

######################################################

The name property (string) is instantiated by default (see the comment in the code) as part of the PropertyGroup (which stores the contents of each item) so in this case you do not have to do anything, except editing draw_item and turn the label() into a prop() call if you want it to be editable (mentioned in the code comments as well).

-split.label(text=item.name, icon=custom_icon)
+split.prop(item, "name", icon=custom_icon, emboss=False, text="")

enter image description here

Reduced version of the first example from here to add/remove any number of meaningless items and allow the user to edit their names.
