The capture device itself isn't connected to both. He has the composite output from the consoles connected to both the TV and the capture device, via either a splitter or a composite output jack on his TV (if I'm interpreting the diagram correctly). Normally, you'd connect the composite output only to the TV and use S-Video for the stream itself (see below), but the NES doesn't support S-Video.

He has the S-Video output from the consoles connected directly to the capture device (I'm assuming either his TV doesn't support S-Video, or he doesn't have an S-Video splitter).

As for your other questions, I can't really help you, sorry. I personally use an ancient PCI capture card and a program called DScaler, which OBS captures the video from. It's a horrible and semi-unstable voodoo setup that I wouldn't wish upon anybody. (Fun fact: I have no drivers installed for my capture device!)

The S-video A/V cables for SNES/N64/GCN have both a composite and S-video plug on the end. If you send one to the capture device and the other to the TV, you can get split output.

Alternately, you can use your TV's video output (if it has one) as the source for the capture device.
