Chroma keying! Read up on the proper lighting techniques, use a good camera and get to know Keylight in AE. Know that Keylight likes its chroma key backgrounds a little bit on the dark side.

You would need to use rotoscoping to separate the actor from the background in an already existing video which was not done using green/blue screen. I think Dave assumed that you were starting from scratch.

Good question. For something like those Drake vines, it seems like it could be difficult, as his clothes and skin are taking on the same lighting colors as the background.

The answer is having to rotoscope him out. I would probably try After Effects' rotobrush tool.

Also, props to whoever took the time to roto out Drake for those hilarious spoof videos. Unfortunately, I don't think there was an easy and quick way to do it. But if so, I'd like to know as well!
