You can use a site like this http://phrase.it/ to create speech bubbles. Or and if you require a software, use PhotoScape or GIMP to create speech bubbles.
I have had some luck "hacking Ikea" for similar projects. For greenscreen-effects, they even have bright green tables :D. This is but one alternative, and you find instructions here, at IkeaHackers With the use of two hampers, this is the result: But here is the real crux: succeeding with this, lighting is alpha and omega. You will need at least three ...
Usually, what's done in that case is simply to shoot the object against a white backdrop with lighting positioned to control the shadow. Some homebrew examples can be seen at http://www.instructables.com/howto/photo+backdrop/
The answer is NO. Photoshop is raster based so we deal with pixels or more accurately said, we deal with color channels. Layers are really masks that affect color channels. However you can make your dream come true by designing whatever you design in a clever way. For example text can be turned into shapes and then use them as masks of a solid color layer ...
Chroma Keying is the use of a backdrop that makes it easier, particularly in video production, to use the "keyed color" as a mask. If you look up "Setting Up a Chroma Key studio" on your favorite search engine you should find a good number of resources, guides, and tips on creating a nice studio space for yourself. The process for still photography is ...
How about a light box? They are cubes made of some sort of semi-translucent fabric that diffuses the light. You can probably find something like that in your local photography equipment store.

You won't create mockups like these with InDesign. For this kind of work I would recommend using one of the many available Photoshop templates, because the time and expense of creating something from scratch is beyond the budget of most small projects like this. You can find a large number of mockup templates, both commercial (but inexpensive) or free, by ...
For free you're going to want to look into Gimp. You don't entirely create the book model. You find a royalty free version you can either license or is available under an applicable open license. Then bring that into Gimp and edit the front cover and spine. That will be a lot easier for you than trying to draw a book and pages from scratch.
Here is a list of free graphic software. Brochures and eBooks are typically InDesign territory, so look for an equivalent of that. Scribus seems to be a popular one, although I've never used it myself. Related discussion here
Adobe InDesign has some very limited illustration capabilities via the Pen Tool and the Shape Tool and Direct Selection Tool.
