For my game, I want the player to pick which gender the main protagonist should be, with slight alterations
depending on the gender like a different party member, a different colored UI, etc. Does anyone know how to make this possible?

Basic switch, conditional branches etc. There are tutorials for these things. It depends a lot on how you want to implement it, but it all comes down to using a switch and conditional branches.

Yeah, above poster laid it out for you.

Start out as transparent and add auto-run event that will guide players through the gender choice.

changed text in the game can be handled by switch and eventing (especially the text codes of show text and the conditional branches)

changes in UI will require changes in scripts, and I don't know a plugin that makes the windowskin selectable at the moment

A simple fix for text boxes is instead of checking every text box that uses the MC's pronouns, instead make a handful of actors that do nothing but are named a pronoun (that's... seven?) and call their names in text boxes. You only have to make one box no matter the gender then.

For actual mechanics, set those up either at the beginning or have them based on a switch or variable.
