open to using multiple pieces of software to accomplish this task.
I'm glad you allow this. For me, this combination of software does the job really well: Open Broadcaster Software plus OBS Virtual Cam plus VB Cable.
Except for the audio part, this combination is free, also ok for commercial use. OBS and OBS Virtual Cam are both GPL2 licensed ...
Manycam is a virtual webcam, you can provide it with videos, images, audio and has many other features like flipping or mirroring footage, adding effects and so on. I have not used it recently but it looks like they have gone for a more payed method now, with a free version. Older versions, if you can find them, will allow you to remove the watermark and use ...

Works on any platform that supports USB Web Cam.
You may consider using AlterCam program.
It works with Windows 10.
It installs virtual webcam you can use anywhere. Looks like it can't use static image as the video source, but there are a lot of workarounds - you can select your real webcam as the source and turn brightness setting to zero, you can select unexisting ip-camera as the source and get black ...
A microphone is an input device. Sound that is generated external to the microphone is then transmitted to the storage/recording device.
The electronics involved in this device make it a one-way device. You cannot pass sound into your microphone to be broadcast.
It's possible that you could be clearer in your requirements.
There is a program called Total ...
After testing numerous apps I ended up using an app called JusTalk. It doesn't tick the open source box, but it does work as intended. The ring tone comes out of the phone speaker and the conversation happens on whatever is connected to the headset connector.
