How to make and split rar files?

I'm new on linux, I can make zip/tar/... files, but not rar files. Can anyone tell me how to make/split a rar file?

Rar is a proprietary format and the archiver is not free of charge
apt install rar unrar

Rar is shareware and has a 40 days test period (unrar is free)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
