If you want to solve your cube with an OLL/PLL-like method, your only option is to learn more algs. Here's one possible solution (with the red face facing you):

R B 2R U2 2R U2 F2 2R F2 2L' U2 2L U2 2R2 B' R' // parity
2L 2R D2 2L' 2R' U 2L 2R D2 2L' 2R' U' // opposite swaps

(If you don't understand the notation, that doesn't matter; the link above goes to a cube simulation that plays out the moves so you can follow them one by one.)

Alternatively, use the reduction method and… you'll still have to learn some parity alg, but at least the parity algs will be much faster there.

I’m really bad at big cubes the higher I get the worse I am. Pls give tips on how to do 6x6 and 7x7 in under 10 minutes 5x5 tips would also be nice too.

Learn commutators for the last centres on 6x6 and 7x7 and do freeslice. Also try learning r u variations for some of the harder OLLs and PLLs :)
