Apparently it means "become", or "manage to become" / "have the opportunity to become".

No, not here. "get to" with a verb infinitive means to manage or have the opportunity to do that thing.

Passive "get" is with a past participle, e.g. "I got arrested".

It is a similar meaning again.

"I didn't get to be where I am today" = I didn't manage to reach my present situation/position.
