I think you need to set

(setq org-id-link-to-org-use-id 'create-if-interactive)

Then the usual C-c l and C-c C-l should work to store links and insert

It might be worth noting though, that in my experience, this is most
useful for links within a file, or to files in your agenda list. org does not
have a good way to find an id in a non-agenda file if that file is not
already open. Although there should be a .org-id-locations file
somewhere that stores this mapping of id to file. I have not experienced
100% success with this.

Also, you have to be a little cautious about copying a headline to
another place, because then you have two ids in different places.

anyway, the point is try it out and see if it works for you ;)
