Powerapps vs sharepoint list

I am new to powerapps and sharepoint. I need help in creating an app. The problem I am facing right now is I want to edit item from sharepoint list through powerapps. I know it can be done by browsegallery. But then i dont the browse gallery. I have created 10 items in my sharepoint list. I need to scan a qr code that linked to particular item in sharepoint list. Then after i clicked the link i need to edit that particular item details in second screen through powerapps. Is there any solution for this?
