[HELP] Best proxy server socks5

Hi, I am really struggling to find a good socks5 proxy to use on my Linux machine.
I have found tinyproxy but the version that I get from apt-get does not support HTTPS and it's a normal HTTP proxy, not even socks5.
I can't even find good documentation about squid or other proxy servers, it's such a niche argument.
I don't have such a great knowledge of http and tcp protocols to create one myself so I'm kind of lost.

Thank you!

If you need it to inspect web requests for your development I would suggest investing in a Charles Proxy license, it will worth it.

If you have other needs, like relaying trough VPNs or other stuff please state them, and hopefully a sys-admin will help you with a free solution.
