How can I use the Stack Exchange API for creating a site like Stack Overflow in another language?

I know there are similar questions but no clear answer. It says in the banner (ads) "use our API to build your own q&a platform". But how? I have looked at Stack Apps and Stack Exchange but couldn't find anything.

So for free or not can I create a site like Stack Overflow of my own? If yes how?

Note: I don't have to run it on my hardware.

And what has Stack Apps to do with this?

No you cannot. The API is for interacting with the existing sites. See area51 if you want to propose a new one.
