    Probably because of the fact that you can gain root access.

    Android is a mobile OS based on the Linux kernel and UNIX-like userland software. By default, the user using the device is using an unprivilaged account. No access to directories that they do not have permission to access. The 'root' user has access to all. Rooting an Android phone is the process by which you gain access to the 'root' account which isn't available by default. There are many available applications that take advantage of this.

    The other side of customizability is the fact that you can customize almost everything on an Android device from the homescreen to the keyboard used and even how the device reacts to certain events in day-to-day use. Very versatile and flexible.

    For most android users customization refers to home screen layout/widgets/icon changes in other words theming. Rooting/custom roms and changes to the android framework like what is done by OEMS like Samsung Touchwiz, HTC Sense the like are part of it also but to a smaller subset.

    For homescreen changes look around in MyColorScreen to see whats possible with varying levels of difficulty.

    Can we change the mobile home screens like that? Or we need to learn a course for it?

    MyColorScreen has a Themer app that makes it easy to choose themes. Not all of the themes on the website are in the Themer app because they use multiple apps to compose them but enough are that you can find one you like and its very easy to switch between them.

    You can't change the homescreens like that as your phone is not running Android.

    Applications such as Titanium Backup that can backup and restore all installed applications and their settings as well as restore them, Xposed which can install modules that allow for changing functionality of a rooted device or applications installed on it, and FX that can access restricted folders on the rooted device.

    Sorry about your friend's wallet, but to each their own, right? There is a lot to learn about Android to get the most out of it. Same for every platform no matter how little leeway you are given. This is especially true for technology enthusiasts, software developers, and mobile device technicians.
