I'm curious — when streaming on Twitch, can you use a custom background. Not sure if it's called a green screen background, but that's how I always think of it...

In short, I'm wondering where your igloo is, haha!

Yes you can.
In OBS, you just have to add an image source behind everything and set the background image you want.
You can even change it scene by scene.
The most fun thing are stinger transitions. You can see them on big streamers, but they are very easy to set up.
And for the camera, you can use a green screen and simulate a location. Very easy to set up as well.
