I have tried doing them but i cant perform them without holding something
is it because my legs too weak for balance?

I saw on youtube one guy doing pistol squat on a dip bar i was very confused lol he is surely beast balance and strength!!

I also need help with building leg routine because I never actually trained legs I want to transform my legs to monster big huge fast balance strong legs.

how i achieve this?
or if you achieved how ?

You need to work your way up to pistols, they're difficult because of the balance and strength required for them. You can do squats, lunges, calf raises, pistol negatives, car pushes (really killer to finish a leg workout. Put the car in neutral, have someone steer, and push that baby down the block focusing on using your leg muscles.) Doing sprints will help condition your legs as well. I'm sure there are other exercises for your legs that someone else will post.

Here's a pistol tutorial that Daniel made:
