I'm trying to build my own NAS for video editing. I won't be working with 4k footage - 2k at the most. The NAS will primarily be for archive but I want to have the option to edit off of it, if needed. I'm fairly certain that this will do the job but my biggest concern is the "networking" part. I've never built a NAS so I'm not sure what is needed to connect it to my PC. Let me know if you have any insights.

Not sure why you do ask this here on the storage forum ?
if you are uncertain about HDD's I would personally not recommend those SMR drives for video editing whatsoever.
the most important part for a NAS is the ethernet card to quickly transfer all your data
