Start by creating a new PlayerManager passing an array of nodes and an object with user the client's user id and shards The total number of shards your bot is operating on.

const { PlayerManager } = require("discord.js-lavalink");

const nodes = [{ host: "localhost", port: 2333, password: "youshallnotpass" }];

const manager = new PlayerManager(client, nodes, {
    user: client.user.id, // Client id
    shards: shardCount // Total number of shards your bot is operating on

manager.on("error", (node, error) => {
    node; // is the node which the error is from
    error; // is the error;

Resolving tracks using LavaLink REST API

const fetch = require("node-fetch");
const { URLSearchParams } = require("url");

async function getSongs(search) {
    const node = client.player.nodes.first();

    const params = new URLSearchParams();
    params.append("identifier", search);

    return fetch(`http://${node.host}:${node.port}/loadtracks?${params}`, { headers: { Authorization: node.password } })
        .then(res => res.json())
        .then(data => data.tracks)
        .catch(err => {
            return null;

getSongs("ytsearch:30 second song").then(songs => {
    // handle loading of the tracks somehow ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Joining and Leaving channels

// Join
const player = await manager.join({
    guild: guildId, // Guild id
    channel: channelId, // Channel id
    host: "localhost" // lavalink host, based on array of nodes

await player.play(track); // Track is a base64 string we get from Lavalink REST API

player.once("error", error => console.error(error));
player.once("end", data => {
    if (data.reason === "REPLACED") return; // Ignore REPLACED reason to prevent skip loops
    // Play next song

// Leave voice channel and destory Player
await manager.leave(guildId); // Player ID aka guild id
