I'm looking at getting a development environment set up so I can more easily create and test custom reports and templates. Are there any guides on doing this? Would I be better off just setting up a complete wordpress/civi dev evnrionment?

For developer documentation, see https://docs.civicrm.org/dev/en/latest/

To create a development environment, use buildkit

For custom reports, you might want to check existing report extensions before developing your own.

If you want to develop reports, see the CiviReport Reference but I suggest you investigate SearchKit (examples) in preference to developing old-style reports.
