    What you're looking for is OBS. I'm not sure if you can route the audio from standalone software, but you can definitely open it as a plugin in a DAW and then route the audio from the DAW -> OBS -> whatever streaming platform.

    OBS (https://obsproject.com/) is a program that is installed on a computer and then acts as a middle man between you and a website like Google Meet. Because it creates a "virtual camera," it should work with any browser.

    Better content in the long run will increase channel growth. OBS provides several layers of customization (overlays, filters, transitions) that you can add right while capturing your footage. This can add to your work to make the production feel more polished.

    For my training videos, I create a slide with a square that is green and then use a tool with a chroma key to let me "poke" through the PowerPoint slide as the background. I am using a higher-end paid BlackMagic ATEM recording tool, but I believe you can do it with the free OBS Studio tool (https://obsproject.com/).

    There are plenty of programs out there to record your screen. OBS is a free, full-featured, and open source piece of video recording and streaming software. Windows 10 has a built in recorder with the Game Bar (Win+G).
