"coordinates and recieve street data including Street names" is called "Reverse Geocoding" (gives you a full hierarchical address up to the country name). See older "reveresegeocoding" questions and Nominatim.

Getting other data around that place is a different category / an additional step. Maybe with Overpass API's "around" query (use Overpass turbo if you want to play with it).
