So I'm supposed to connect an app developed on xamarin forms cross-platforms to SQL SSMS 2017. I can't use azure for firewall issues since it's for my job. The database is not local but it's been created already and I have access to it as administrator. I'm really new to xamarin forms so I'm kind of lost on how to make the connection. I've been doing research and I need a REST API to be able to connect it. I just want to keep it simple so it works and I can present it to my team. Thanks

What I have tried:

Every one of your statements is a contradiction; or totally unrelated to the previous one.

Even if you could "connect" a xamarin form to SSMS, what happens then?

You can't connect ANY app to SSMS. SSMS is a tool used to manage a SQL Server instance. What I think you *really* want to do is to connect the app to a SQL Server database. If it were me, I'd develop a web service that could be used to connect to the database. Any app can connect to a web service.
