OAuth2 Developer Keys

I've developed a Google Sheets Addon to upload quiz questions to a Canvas quiz. I have OAuth2 login working for my test account, but I can't find any documentation about how to create a public key/id pair for other institutions to use the app.

So, if I create an id/key pair under my domain's account, are those credentials valid for another domain using the app (in other words, I hard code those into the source)? Or, will those developer keys need to be provided for each domain using the app?

Is there a way to register a Canvas third-party app outside the LTI protocol?

The developer keys for an institution have to be generated by an admin of the institution.  This way they control what applications can be used at their institution.

You cannot write an application that can be used without the institution's permission.
