You can only learn through practice, there are so many different situations that you can't just research it. You have to play and experience and discover for yourself what is good against what. Some things to keep in mind are: Terrain, numbers, unit cost (resources as well as time), tech level of the unit, range, AOE damage, bonuses to x, (and many more) ...

The key here is not to follow builds, there are some builds which you can do almost no matter what your opponent does, but these are usually cheesy or all in.

Look at what they're ...

Yep terran units like Thor and Battlecrusisers are very expensive in their gas requirements. But 2-3 bases with mining operations are suffice for heavy demands. There can be maximum 3 SCVs harvesting per gas assimilator. You should check are you utilizing it to its full. Other than that you'll have to adjust your gameplay and strategy.

Scouting is very important for exactly this reason--you need to know what your opponent is doing so you know whether you need to change your strategy. If they're sending out early aggression, you need to know that so you can cut your macro and start building units and static defense.

Running OBS in Game Capture fixed it perfectly, as per GiantTree's comment. I ran it in Monitor mode because I didn't see that setting. Went through some more of the settings and I am VERY impressed with the output I am getting now.

You can't. It is only possible to choose your color in Custom Games or Arcade, but not in Matchmaking.

Should more Terran players be using bunkers instead of other buildings to wall off? All decent Terran players use a bunker to defend their natural against Protoss. Is there a better tactic I could have used to apply pressure early game? This is hard to answer as you haven't been very specific about what time this has all happened. If you add more ...
