Stellar nodes are seperated in two components: stellar-core (p2p processing) and stellar-horizon (client interface, actually I guess the RPC interface you're looking for). Luckily afaik both are contained in the quickstart container and if it's running then you should be able to curl http://IP:8000 the endpoint. It's not jsonrpc like bitcoind but a similar, open RESTfull http interface and you can find more information as well as lots of SDKs for your prefered language in the stellar api reference.

Nevertheless, for creating an address or creating a transaction (both you can do offline/offchain) you'll need just a SDK - the node is only for requesting account/transaction data or submitting transactions.
