I need to build a 550 Euro PC (including peripherals, monitor and tower). I need the PC for programming, gaming (Fortnite, Rainbow Six Siege, PubG, GTA V, and academic work). I am from Spain and will be ordering on Spain Amazon. Please put together a good powerful build list on pcpartpicker and send me.

Get a free mouse & keyboard from someones work.

CPU - has a decent integrated graphics until you can afford a discrete graphics card
Mobo - has 4 RAM slots and guaranteed shipping BIOS that supports Ryzen 3000 CPUs
RAM - has a nice fast CAS16
Case - tempered glass instead of acrylic. Good internal layout and fan mounts
PSU - Good quality unit.
Additional fans - most cases in this range only ship with one fan. Probably ok for no graphics card, but as soon as you get a dGPU, you'll want at least one intake fan.
That monitor is 24", 1080p, IPS, 40-75Hz FreeSync via DisplayPort or HDMI. Best choice in your budget range.

Not half bad actually! When I first saw your budget, I thought "not a chance".

Left some room to play with "peripherals". Mouse and keyboard could be free.
Could I like try to build the kind of list I want and send it across so you can vet it?

It is primarily for programming and academic work, then gaming

Sure, lets see what you had in mind.
I did update my list (above) and added some explanations to my choices. Didn't feel the BenQ monitor was worth it.

Flayed had to make some sacrifices to cram the GTX1650 and an SSD into his/her [overbudget] build. I certainly agree that a dGPU and an SSD are worthwhile components (dGPU for gaming, SSD for overall system responsiveness), I just reserved those as "future" upgrades and chose my component list to give the strongest "foundation" I could provide.
The SU650 SSD is decidedly pedestrian. It would be nice to be able to get something a bit nicer than that.

Yes.
Go to https://es.pcpartpicker.com/

Click "System Builder"

You will get a blank list - choose an item to select, say CPU. Once you do that, go to the right and click on the + next to MERCHANTS, so that you can choose Amazon España.

Then continue selecting parts, etc. When you want to present your build, at your parts list, near the upper right you will see: Markup - and one of the choices is BB. Click on that BB. It will give a BB-code formatted version of your list which you can then copy and paste into a message here.

Make this better or cheaper please

Ok. Lets break things down.

CPU - 2200G vs 3200G - Not a lot of difference (especially after overclocking). The 3200G is manufactured on a 12nm process whereas the 2200G is 14nm. I'd say the 3200G would be 10% faster. I think the 3200G is worth the extra $4 here.

Mobo - same pick.

RAM - My kit is faster and cheaper

Storage - I'd go with your WD Blue 500GB if you have the funds.

Case - I don't like the Q300L because it has an acrylic side panel and...other smaller factors

PSU - The CXM 550 is a good choice. But not worth the price premium. For nearly the same cost as the CXM-550, the TXM-550 is far better

Wifi adapter - meh. If you need WiFi, this is how you get it.

Monitor - the LG 24MP59G is FAR better and larger.

Keyboard/mouse/headphones - do you need to actually buy these things?

The monitor is too expensive for me. Is this https://es.pcpartpicker.com/list/ZDcY27 better?

You're also going to have to live with that monitor for the foreseeable future of this system. Unless you have absolutely zero way to source a free keyboard and mouse (you don't have any headphones...at all...for anything?), that money should go toward the monitor. The keyboard and mouse you're buying aren't going to be any better than Dell/HP/Lenovo freebies anyway.

No. I don't have a headphone. How can I source a free keyboard and mouse?

Talk to friends or family. See if their jobs have unused keyboards / mice from Dell/HP/Lenovo computer purchases (these come with a keyboard and mouse with every purchase)

If that is not possible, the build list is https://es.pcpartpicker.com/list/ZDcY27 . Could you change the case to a good looking one (with preferably tempered glass) one with preinstalled good fans so I do not need to install any myself and resend it? Also, I don't need that much power, my primary use is programming and academic work.

You can open my PCpartpicker list and "click edit part list" above the blue wattage box

You've still got that expensive slow RAM.
The MG130-G is tempered glass. If it doesn't look good to you, that's your opinion.
Read back about my (and King-V's) TX-550M PSU comments from earlier

Ultimately, I think you're making a mistake with your monitor choice. Please verify your keyboard & mouse situation before you buy the monitor you've selected. My updated build (above) is only €10 over your assumed € 550 budget if you don't need to purchase a mouse & keyboard.

Since I can't source the keyboard, mouse and have 0 headphones, and not that much of a hardcore gamer. So in my ideal list https://es.pcpartpicker.com/list/ZDcY27 just change the case and RAM to a better one please.

It's better than 1080p. I've found 3440x1440 very good but I dont think you have the budget for it. However you could always get the 16:10 screen now and add a 2nd at some point for more real estate
Ok, and I just downgraded to https://es.pcpartpicker.com/list/Wsmqwh . I just moved from 3200G to 2200G.
