I want to know how to add custom link to the header panel that should be manageable from back-end. so that the person trying to change the value can easily change it without any coding knowledge

I have tried it with module and it successfully worked using following code:-

<referenceBlock name="header.links">

 <block class="Learning\Module\Block\Link" name="custom-header-link">
     
            <arguments>
            <argument name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Customer Service: 888-371-4942</argument>
            <argument name="path" xsi:type="string" translate="true">support</argument>
            </arguments>

      </block> 

      
 </referenceBlock>

but i dont know how to manage it from backend. thank you

You can set xsi:type="helper" and get dynamic value from admin.For that, Follow this below steps for that :

Replace this code in your xml file

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <body>
        <referenceBlock name="header.links">
           <block class="Learning\Module\Block\Link" name="custom-header-link">
              <arguments>
                 <argument name="label" xsi:type="helper" helper="Learning\Module\Helper\Data::yourFunctionLabel" translate="true"/>
                 <argument name="path" xsi:type="helper" helper="Learning\Module\Helper\Data::yourFunctionPath" translate="true"/>
              </arguments>
           </block>
        </referenceBlock>
    </body>
</page>

Now, create yourFunctionLabel() and yourFunctionPath() in helper file for set dynamic label and path value.

You just need to add 2 methods in Link.php file

Learning\Module\Block\Link.php

and add the method below:

public function getLabel()
{
    return "Customer Service: 888-371-4942"; // You can set configuration field data dynamically here
}

public function getPath()
{
    return "Support"; // You can set configuration field data dynamically here
}

your layout file code should be

<referenceBlock name="header.links">
    <block class="Learning\Module\Block\Link" name="custom-header-link" />
 </referenceBlock>

Hope this will help you!
