If you are using SharePoint online, the quickest and easiest solution is Microsoft Office Forms. It doesn't have a ton of branding/customization options, but it is quick and easy to get up and running and integrated with Power Automate (Flow).
On the other end of the complexity spectrum, you can create a custom list to hold the information you want, then develop an SPFx custom webpart to control the input. This could have a high initial development cost, but there are no additional per user recurring costs. The data in your SharePoint list then has all the normal connectivity points to Power Automate.
