1Can I use any case for a PC build?
Many cases will have fans already installed, which can be very helpful, but if low temperatures are important to you, you’ll want to make sure the cooling system you need is available. A common rule of thumb is that if you’re planning to do a lot of custom work, the better.
If you’re looking for lighting, take a look at Corsair’s Carbide Spec-Omega RGB.

14Can I fit any motherboard any case?
The ATX, mini-ITX, micro-ATX, and extended ATX are all common form factors. There are a few others but they’re pretty niche. If this is a standard desktop tower-style unit, the overwhelming likelihood are that you now have a standard ATX or micro-ATX motherboard.
EDIT: Note that OEM machines, such as Dell or HP, may have special mounting points or I/O plate alignments.
