I want to intentionally make connector end = host, and the other
connector end = device.
Generally the C-C cable is supposed to be symmetrical, and the host/device role is determined by Rp (host side) or Rd (device side) inside the corresponding receptacles, and the communication goes across one CC wire.
But your approach is also doable, although non-standard. The "device side" of your cable should have 5.1k pull-down on CC pin, and the "host end" should have a pull-up to VBUS.
However, you will need to decide what kind of capacity you should fake. 56k pull-up will provide information that your cable is 500 mA capable. This would be the safest option.
ADDENDUM: The above answer assumes that the cable does not connect CC pins on both ends along the cable. Otherwise, as LMS commented below, some systems might engage Power Delivery negotiations and increase VBUS above safe levels for CC receiver electronics.
