The artificer's Infuse Item feature (TCoE, p. 9; E:RftLW, p. 57) grants access to a number of infusion options, one of which is the Homunculus Servant (TCoE, p. 21; E:RftLW, p. 62).

I'm just trying to find out whether the Homunculus Servant I create has, for example, tool proficiencies to help me creating magic items.

No. The servant's proficiencies are Perception and Stealth.

The Homunculus Servant has no tool proficiencies. If it did, they would be listed in the infusion description or the servant's stat block, but none are listed. The only proficiencies it has are:

Skills Perception +0 plus PB × 2, Stealth +2 plus PB

Where PB here is the artificer's proficiency bonus.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Rakiden Rules as written, no it cannot. There are optional rules for learning new proficiencies during downtime, but those generally apply to player characters, and then, only at the DM's discretion. \$\endgroup\$ May 20, 2022 at 17:29
