How I can track PDF Document insights (view statistics) for each document shown in my website

I'm a developer in a startup in Australia. 

We want to use Adobe PDF Embed API to track view statistics for each document shown on the website to see which documents and which pages were viewed so that we can improve the content.

I created an account and got an API KEY for PDF Embed API.  Then I opened Adobe Developer Console Insights page of the API.

Q1. I can't see the visits made from development enviroment/localhost. Is there a way to see the insights of development enviroment? Or should I publish the project to a public domain everytime?

Q2. It only shows a graph named API Calls Overtime. But I need to track insights of the pages for each document dynamically shown in the platform. Not just the API Calls. In the articles I read you mentioned about reportSuiteId to track those kind of data but we don't have Adobe Analytics account. And I'm still not sure if we need it or not.  Our product team told me that they reached out 3 people from Adobe's sales team and they only told us we can only use Adobe PDF Embed API to track insights but when we ask how we can track insights for each document they didn't respond us and we couldn't find a way to start that subscription or trial to see if we need it or not.
