Alright, sorry for the general question but I just need to know from people more experienced in vMix if I can do this before putting down the money and time to learn the ins and outs.

So, there's a card game, Magic the Gathering and due to the pandemic a lot of people have been logging into a service (Spelltable) that let's them all link up and stream out the game they are playing live but in different locations

(link to a game being played

So I want to do something like this with vMix due to its better latency and call quality plus I want to add another layer and make it a game show I'll be doing different overlays through the show. Like a wheel to spin and little animations.

So, my main questions are
1) Can I host a call through vMix call that can connect me with 3 other people
2) Can I make it so the callers are pretty much seeing and hearing what the audience is seeing/hearing. I need them to see what the wheel lands on and to hear audio cues of things happening, ect.
3) Can I have a background, 4 different boxes for each caller and still be able to have graphics on top of this? Like say a big red X from family feud as an example. I'm not quite sure if that's a layer, or an overlay, still learning the terminology there (I'm use to FCPX for editing videos)
4) is SRT also something I should look into for something like this. Giantbomb does streaming where up to 5-6 calls are watching someone play a game using vMix and SRT. (https://www.reddit.com/r/giantbomb/comments/kv5l13/you_down_with_srt_yeah_you_know_me_giant_bomb/)

Anyway, I'm sure this is all possible and I just need to get in there and figure it out, it's just a bit overwhelming is all. Was hoping to get some starting points or something to help out. Thank you so much for reading all this

Yes to all your questions. SRT will require a bit more tinkering. You can also look at a company like Rivet that would help managing those streams.
