The Testnet API is used for browsing non-fungible assets on the Ethereum Goerli test network. Creating and purchasing assets on this network requires Goerli ether, which is free. Here is an example faucet link which you can use to acquire Goerli for testing.

The API is identical to the OpenSea mainnet API, except the base URL is https://testnets-api.opensea.io/api/v1. For mainnet an API key is needed, but for testnets you do not need an API key.
