So, I recently watched a video of someone turning into a creeper, and I wonder if that’s a mod. I need as much answers as possible.

    Also, which edition of Minecraft are you playing? You've tagged the question with both tags.

You can't turn into mobs - at best you can change the player skin to one resembling given mob (although the model remains the same, so unless it's a zombie you're fooling no-one).

What you can do though, is to look through mob's eyes - spectate as that mob. In order to do so, enter the spectator mode and left-click the mob. From then on, until either you leave (using the shift "disembark" key as if leaving minecarts) or the mob dies, you're watching the world through that mob's eyes. And boy are some of these interesting!

It is most likely a plugin, such as this one or it could just be a mod. There is no way to actually turn into a mob in vanilla Minecraft.
