Why is the development environment necesary ?

Because you are doing development work. For running the program you
only need the package containing the runtime library b ut for
compilinig applications you need headers and and library symlinks in
order to succeed.

Do the glib header files ".h" require the glib development package ?

They contain them. Development package means it contains all filles
needed to develop applications that use glib.

I thought that glib-develop would be required to implement some new
glib function or modify an existent glib function.

For that you'd need the source code and that is in the .src.rpm and
not the -devel one.

Sorry. I am confused.

Yes, seems you need to educate yourself a bit further.
