I don't know what to tell you, it looks like they are catering to Delphi, Builder and their own tools

although they say any language I wonder really.. ?

 There is a form you fill out to get registered on the MS store network, from there they give you a key and you need to down load the SDK kit..

There is no wizard ("out of the box") in Lazarus, to create an .Appx file (APPX \ MSIX package a.k.a. Windows \ Microsoft application bundle).

A summary concerning the general culture around how to create a Windows \ Microsoft installer:
· https://stackoverflow.com/questions/49624070/how-to-create-windows-installer

The Microsoft site describes how to create such files:
· https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/msix/app-installer/create-appinstallerfile-vs
· https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/iot/create-install-package
· https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/appxpkg/make-appx-package--makeappx-exe-
...\...
use: Linux 64 bits (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS).
Lazarus version: 2.0.4 (svn revision: 62502M) compiled with fpc 3.0.4 - fpDebug \ Dwarf3.

Even on Windows itself the process takes a bunch of tools, I guess it won't be easy to replicate on Linux. Learning the format and doing reverse engineering is a hell lot of work, though doable. Now as usual, who wants to do it?
