Thanks for introducing yourself and welcome!
You need to create an account on the Xfce GitLab [1], then request rights to fork by providing your username, here or on IRC #xfce-dev.
See also [2].

Concerning your contribution, it is divided into two topics: double click and mouse wheel.
It turns out that there are already two feature requests that correspond to it: [3], [4].
So you should create two merge requests, one after the other or in parallel if everything is already ready, as you like.
See you soon on GitLab :)

As of late I was disappointed to see Ristretto (the best image viewer) was lacking the ability for the user to customize what the double-click and scroll-wheel does - the default full screen and change image functions are not practical for myself. So I decided to implement my own preferences for such a feature. It took me about a day to get familiar with the source code for Ristretto, but before long I had a perfectly working solution. However, I felt it was a huge waste if I couldn't at least share it with the OSS community I love so much. So here I am making my first attempt to start compiling a pull request for the git repo. I look forward to sharing my code.
