Yes. Guides showing how to install drivers on arch linux should work

No, valve has not locked down steamos. It is just a customized arch install designed to run steam on login and not show the desktop environment.

<<SteamOS is a Debian-based Linux distribution designed to run Valve's Steam and Steam games. It also provides a desktop mode (GNOME) which can run regular Linux applications. In addition to a stable Debian base, SteamOS features various third-party drivers and updated graphics stack, a newer Linux kernel with long-term support, and a custom graphics compositor designed to provide a seamless transition between Steam, its games and the SteamOS system overlay. The base operating system is open-source software, but the Steam client is proprietary. >> https://distrowatch.com/table-mobile.php?distribution=steamos

Above I have attached several sources and the official repository.

You can install the NVidia driver using the APT package manager. It might be difficult at first for newbies. Many guides suggest using NVidia's .run file. I prefer to use APT only. The official arch linux guides are done well. But if you've never used the command line, you can look for some tutorials on YouTube.

I've tried installing HoloISO on 2 machines, one with intel CPU and integrated graphics and one with a 5700u AMD APU and while the install process seemed to go fine for both neither gave me any display at the first boot. They might have some issues if it doesn't even work on AMD.

I have never tested holoiso. Only now I have checked the official repository and the pacman.conf file (therefore it is a distribution derived from arch). The sources attached in the previous post belong to SteamOS. 😅

Those are not repositories. They are the dependencies of the base-devel package you are installing.

You should install all packages for base-devel if your plan on compiling your own packages and/or installing packages from AUR
