Python Making web bots

Hello,
I'm here to ask a pretty simple question.
I want to make some bots like a Instagram Bot that posts images for example but, I know about about selenium and I don't want to program it with selenium ( probably ).
What I want to do is make a website bot without using the websites API. Modules are okay except selenium, like I said.
I want to make a bot that doesn't control your mouse in specific positions etc. A bot that just works in the background while you watch Youtube for example.
( If python isn't the best programming language to make web bot's be sure to tell me a better one )

Without API-s? Why do you want to do that? API-s are there as an interface to post on those platforms. And API-s are probably the only way to do it, available to us, regular mortals. We don't have access to low-level functions used to build Facebook and company anyway.

Well API's have to be made somehow, and breaking the possibilities of what you can do with an API would be awesome, you could do so much more. And most of these API's are kinda sketchy. The official ones are good but not every website has an API
 
Ok then, what site are you aiming at?

As to programming, it is probably going to be Javascript becuse it is the most rudimentary web browser offer, but I also saw Pyton to Javascript transpilers if you really insist on Python.
