This seems a bit vague and like you can’t be bothered to look elsewhere for information. However, I would like to know the average size they grow up to and roughly how much they weigh at average size, as I am looking into a snake when I leave home, and different places say different things. I want a biggish snake, which I can handle (I’m quite petite and not very strong lol) as I worry I’d lose a smaller one.

There is some good info here Link on the care of Irian Jaya carpet pythons. These are fairly large (up to 7ft) but not as large as many other carpets which can grow 12ft+. Care of other carpets is pretty much the same except for enclosure size.
