If I spawn villagers in creative mode, will they build a village? Or do they even build anything?
No. Villages are created when the world is generated, or built by players. They are not built by villagers. You can build some houses yourself, and the villagers can recognize it as a village, but villagers cannot build anything themselves.
Villagers do not build anything, they are always idle (unless interacting with players).
If you build a village yourself, villagers will begin to breed, but only after the village meets certain criteria.
