Cut in the header to the next two studs, run jack studs down to the floor from the bottom of the header. Then put your sill plate in and then all of the cripple studs from the sill down to the floor. They make access panels that have a drywall ring around them.

Tons of options here. https://www.bestaccessdoors.com/drywall-access-panels/

If you google window opening framing it will give you the general idea of what you need to do. Most examples will be for exterior applications, but the principle is the same, just not as heavy duty, unless the wall is load bearing. If it is then follow the framing design shown for exterior walls.
