I'm wondering if it's possible to mass generate webpages somehow.
I want to be able to generate a lot of empty webpages with the help of a script.
I am very new to this, can someone help me with a basic example of how this would be done?

You can generate pages on your site through PHP directly
$page = new Page();
$page->Title = "My Page";
$page->write(); // save the page
// publish it from draft to live

Sorry if I use this thread to ask, but where would I put that PHP code to be able to generate the pages and make them appear in the sitetree?

Well it depends on where and what context you want to generate the page. Are you running a database migration from an existing system and therefore should encapsulate the code into a BuildTask , or perhaps you need to create a page by default (say always create 1 homepage object) then you'd put that code in a requireDefaultRecords call  which gets run when the user runs dev/build.
