when you install zip rom that is plain vanilla AOSP! you wont see even googleplay to install apps. that is why you will have to install pico gapps to able to install apps.!
if you dont want to install gapps it is ok. You can still use your phone.
Maybe I miss something .
there are alternatives for pretty much every google app

ok I got it working after all
I formatted data by overwriting it with the userdata.img via fastboot sx.ix5.org/files/builds/kagura/misc/userdata.img and flashed the rom first, rebooted, flashed twrp again due to aosp overwriting it with its own recovery, and flashed magisk
flashing magisk and aosp simultaniously gave a bootloop
