If you don't know Java, then I would highly suggest learning the language fully before doing this. Rendering is pretty complicated if you have no knowledge how it works. Additionally, without any knowledge in Java, it'll more be a detriment to you over anything else.

I couldn't find a possible code how to show a Tooltip on the GUI on MC 1.18.2.

In case you do know Java, then all you really need to do is call Screen#renderTooltip and make sure to check that the mouse is within the bounds of where you want it to show up for.

For me it only shows renderTooltipEvent and three subclasses of it.

So...it's not for your GUI. Ok, then if you want to add a tooltip, you wouldn't use an event for tooltips that are being rendered. If you want to render during the screen, you would use ScreenEvent$Render$Post to draw the tooltip using the method I mentioned along with the necessary checks to determine when it appears.
