Creating subsites with unique permissions

We need to create sub-sites each with unique permissions.

Examples I've seen so far take the URI webinfos/add and UseUniquePermissions = false

...our case it's true.  We are controlling permissions at the sub-site level, so they need unique perms

 

We can create the sub-site with unique permissions via webinfos/add + unique perms = true, but we still have to do the following by hand:

--1. Create the default 3 SharePoint groups >> Owners, Members, Visitors (I don't get any of these 3 via running the URI above...it just adds my name).  I think it's the permsetup.aspx page that runs when you manually set the 3 SharePoint Groups >> Readers, Members, Owners

--2. Add the sub-site to the main parent site for Quick Launch navigation (we don't want it on the top / horizontal nav)

--3. Add 2 users to the Owners SharePoint group (user1@companyname.com, user2@companyname.com)

--4. Turn sharing off by members and have all access requests go to the Owners group for approval/monitoring 

 

Are #1-4 above options in the API + FLOW?

 

Thank you!

For #2 in getting the sub-site to parent quick launch, this may work:

I'm interested in option 1 none of my subsites have their unique groups.  I have to do it manually.
