I am really confused about Chrome Extension + Google API

I am really confused. I want to make a Chrome extension that can update the custom Google calendar, which program should I register with the Google API?

Is this a web application? But I don't plan on having a server to host anything because the Chrome extensions are in the browser itself. I really don't think this is a service account, but if it is, someone will enlighten me! So what leaves installed apps?

Well, Google Extensions and Google APIs are very different in nature and they don't have a specific way to communicate.

Chrome Extensions is javascript code running in a browser, authorized by the Chrome user, with more rights than a normal page; while the Google API is accessible through server-side code, just like Google Apps scripts (the javascript code runs on the google server with some google user right).
