Based on this description: What I am trying to do is to create Addon that will download a database from Google Sheets every time you log into the game.

You would likely have to write or find a program that converts from google sheets document into xml format and customize that so that it can easily be copied and pasted into the lua saved variables. And then log into the game and load that up. It will in no way be automatic, as each person using the addon will have to download the google sheet document, run the converter tool, modify the output ( if the converter tool doesn't do that part as well ) and add the information into the respective saved variable file and then log into wow which will then load up that saved variable file.

If you then wanted it to do the reverse .. they would need to do the reverse and if everyone was sharing the same google sheet document, they would have to send you the modified file and everyone would have to wait for you to update the online file to download it the next time they log in.
