I started making a Minish Cap styled BotW fangame by using Youtube videos to learn to use GMS1, but then after a couple of months I decided to switch over to GMS2. Bought it, and then got a £10 course off Udemy on making a Zelda styled 2D ARPG.

There's mountains of tutorials out there, free or otherwise on how to code in those programs, but others exists too. Best thing to do would be to hop on YouTube and watch other people do it. Takes a lot of time and effort but I went from totally clueless to building my own cutscenes and implementing dialogue systems and all sorts so it's certainly doable :) Best of luck!

Godot is a really great choice for a solid, free game engine, imo:
https://godotengine.org/

It'd be really cool to see that demake come to life. Best of luck to you!
I hope you're able to find ways to limit the scale at first and to take things step by step, letting little bits of successful work motivate you all the way to the finish. :)

I'm afraid what you're looking for is quite impossible, there are no easy to use game making programs if you haven't put in the time and effort it requires for them to become easy. Tutorials, tutorials, tutorials!

As for my project, here's a very brief gif of Link opening a chest and finding a Korok in a test area;

Hmm, the best thing I can think to recommend then is Scratch:
https://scratch.mit.edu/

But, instead of it being the thing you'd make your Zelda game in, it'd be more of a thing to help ease you into getting the hang of how games are made, then maybe something like Godot wouldn't be so difficult, and you could then move on to making the game.
Adding to what Jacob said, the unfortunate truth is that most games do take a bit of knowledge and effort to create, and 2D overhead Zelda-style games are certainly not among the easiest and least complex. So, at the very least, it will take a somewhat complicated game creating program to make what you want, as a simpler one - such as Scratch - won't have all the features needed to create it.

But I do urge you to move forward; few good things in this life come easy. If you have passion, don't let it go to waste. Don't miss the opportunity to make something you love. It'll be worth it all in the end if you don't give up.  :)
