And you won't find any documentation or anything like that for Yahoo! Finance Streamer WebSocket. You would literally have to inspect the webpage and go to the networks tab and see what its doing. I was successfully able to get the data I wanted.

I hear you. I found a great article by Greg Bland on this subject. I like his conclusions at the end. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.

Are you kidding me? I reversed engineer the protocol buffer file myself. I know how to use the WebSocket! I have been doing this for last 2.8 years. I even demonstrated how to consume the WebSocket Stream with JavaScript/TypeScript as it was only Python packages were available.
