IDE for develop GStreamer applications

Probably the a way to get a start is to use Visual Code with some project
generation like cmake or meson.
VS code is fairly easy to use and configure and offers most of the features
out of the box and has some plugins for cmake.

You need to try and understand what works for you. But I suggest the first
step to decide on the build system as the first step (like cmake).

Otherwise you can move to vim, which is hard at the beginning but rewarding
at the end.
