    Or is there a way to create a self-hosted database and then use code to extract data from there? Not sure if this is even possible?

    There certainly is.
    Your plugin would register shortcodes which operate upon custom tables in the database. Different shortcodes would query database tables and report the results in HTML tables, OR validate the user credentials and update the database etc.
    Using shortcodes is described here:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Shortcode_API
    When I was getting started with custom tables I found this plugin useful:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-csv-to-database/
    It gave me the immediate ability to load tables, but also showed me how to do the database interactions and user interactions using forms.

    I have developed many applications using this technique.
